Usually when I make candy, I make it for its own sake. Last week, I made this Bourbon honeycomb candy recipe for the sake of cookies. You guys may remember that I was inspired by my friend Viviane’s gorgeous Chocolate Honeycomb Cookies, and I absolutely had to make some for myself. Since I had some lovely Bourbon-infused honey at the house. I ended up with Bourbon Honeycomb Chocolate Chunk Cookies, and they were The Best. See?
As luck and timing would have it, Nancie McDermott was coming over to help with Cook the Book with Denise and Jenni last Sunday, which also happened to be her birthday. So I made more cookies. First I whipped up more of that bourbon honeycomb candy recipe, and then I made more Bourbon Honeycomb Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Because who doesn’t want cookies for their birthday?
I posted the cookies last week, but I wanted to make sure I also posted the Bourbon honeycomb candy recipe since it’s part of what makes the cookies so special. There are plenty of honeycomb candy recipes out there, and in fact, I based my formula on this honeycomb recipe. Still, if you can get your hands on some Bourbon-Infused Honey from Cloister Honey, you will be Very Happy Indeed!
Please know that it is critical to cook the sugar to the correct temperature when making most kinds of candy.
