This honeycomb looks like caramel while cooking — then you add baking soda, and the candy bubbles and, just like that, becomes a light and airy concoction. Drizzle with melted chocolate, or snap off a piece to eat straight out of the pan.

1.Lightly butter and flour a 9" x 13" aluminum roasting pan; set aside.
2.In a medium pot, combine sugar, corn syrup, and 3 tablespoons water. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring gently, until sugar has dissolved; it will start to bubble. Swirl occasionally. Add honey and continue cooking until temperature reaches 325°, then turn off heat. Let pan sit 3 minutes.
3.Dissolve gelatin in a scant 1 teaspoon water until it starts to thicken. Vigorously stir gelatin into sugar mixture until thoroughly combined, then stir in baking soda. Pour immediately into prepared pan. Do not move pan; let sit for at least 2 hours, then use a large fork or hammer to break apart pieces. If desired, dip in melted chocolate.
