      I’m sure I could give it a go! Lol. Maltesers are made of honeycomb. You can make honey comb by melting sugar and syrup together and then heating for a bit. You then put in some baking powder to make it foamy. You can work it on a surface to make it a bit putty like then form it into a large ball. You could then refrigerate this and pour chocolate over it.

      I may give this a go tonight…..
