I was looking for yesterday some recipes (candies) including honey and found some.

Peanut Honey Toffee

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:
1 cup water
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups shelled and roasted peanuts
3/4 cup honey
1/4 cup light corn syrup
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 tsp baking soda

Preparation:
1. Prepare a large baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil that extends over the edges, and spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Combine the sugar and water in a medium saucepan. Stir until the sugar is entirely moistened, then add the honey, corn syrup and salt.
3. Cook the candy over medium-high heat until it reaches 225 degrees F on a candy thermometer. At this point, add the peanuts and stir to combine. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture reaches 290 degrees F.
4. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the butter, baking soda, and peanut butter. Mix until well-combined, and then pour onto the prepared pan.
5. Spread the candy as thin as possible with a spatula or spoon and allow it to set at room temperature. Once it is entirely cool, break it into small pieces to serve. Store the brittle in an airtight container or plastic bag at room temperature.

Honey Candy

http://chickensintheroad.com/farm-bell-recipes/wp-content/uploads/tdomf/4244/candy-005-1024x768-415x311.jpg

Servings: About 50 small pieces

Ingredients
2 c. sugar
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. honey
1/4 c. butter

Directions
Put all the ingredients in heavy pan and cook over medium heat until it reaches the hard crack stage. Pour into a buttered cookie sheet. Fold edges of candy into middle until cool enough to pull. Pull and cut it into one inch pieces or roll in balls. Put on a greased cookie sheet. You can leave it there–or you can twist each piece in wax paper or cellophane.

I’d suggest that you wrap it if you want to carry a few pieces in your purse.

I like the sound of the honey candy - the second recipe - and it really looks good, too.
