This is a favorite Kiwi recipe for a delicious sweet treat. In the U.S. we call it peanut brittle as we add about a cups worth of raw peanuts when the baking soda is added. You can try that as well but in New Zealand we like it just fine without the peanuts.



Hokey Pokey
Ingredients:
 • 5 tablespoons sugar
 • 2 tablespoons golden syrup (or corn
   syrup, although it won't be true hokey
   pokey... look in specialty shops for
   real golden syrup)
 • 1 tsp baking soda (bicarbonate of soda)
Directions:
 1.  Bring sugar and golden syrup to the boil
     slowly in a large heavy saucepan,
     stirring all the time as it will burn
     easily.
 2.  After it starts to foam up, simmer
     gently over a very low heat for 4
     minutes, stirring occasionally and still
     watching it carefully.
 3.  Remove from heat and add baking soda
     quickly until it foams up and pour at
     once into a greased pan or onto a piece
     of aluminium foil with the edges turned up.
 4.  Break it into bits when cold and store in air-tight jars.
 5.  TIP -Be sure to save all the crumbles so that you can top your ice cream with them to make Hokey Pokey
     Ice-cream.
