Hello, are there any alternatives to corn syrup or glucose that can be used a replacement in this recipe as they’re pretty hard to find in the UK supermarket!
Hey Jet. You can use golden syrup, but it will have a stronger flavour than glucose. You can find glucose in most ASDA and Sainsbury's stores in the baking isle. If you can get your hands on it, I highly recommend going that route. Let me know how it goes!
