You Do the Hokey Pokey

A lovely friend of mine invited me to her holiday dinner party.  I have known Mixie since college and many many days where spent on her sofa knitting and drinking and eating and laughing.   For a Mixie dinner party, the standard bottle of wine just didn’t seem special enough for the occasion.

This dilemma sent me bounding towards my groaning cookbook shelves to pull out a recipe I’ve been wanting to make for ages. Nigella’s hokey pokey or honeycomb.

Just three ingredients and five minutes of hands-on cooking were transformed into a sweet treat that I think any hostess would enjoy.  Perfect to make during the Peach’s scant afternoon nap this past Saturday.

I think the honeycomb would be particularly nice over vanilla ice cream or on top of the next batch of brownies. Hint hint, Mixie!

  1. Love this idea. Love it! Someone gave me Lillet, mint, and rose-flavored homemade marshmellows yesterday–how great is that?
