Step by Step Humbug / Berlingot Production Guide

  1. Candy Batch Cooking: Utilise your stove, pan, and thermometer to cook your candy batch. For guidance you can follow our simple recipe and process here and here.
  2. Colour and Flavour Mixing: Transfer the cooked candy batch to a cold table and add your selected colours and flavours.
  3. Hot Table Processing: Transfer the candy batch to the hot table. Use the candy shears to create your design then mould the batch into a large cone shape. You can see how the pattern is made here.
  4. Rope Formation: Quickly stretch a rope from the narrow end of your conical candy batch. You should work efficiently as the batch will be starting to go firm.
  5. Humbug Machine Feeding: Feed the candy rope into your humbug machine. For hand-operated machines, a second person is needed to turn the handle.
  6. Humbug Cooling: Accumulate the formed humbugs on a large table. To expedite firming you can use a desktop fan to circulate air over the sweets.
  7. Breaking Up Sweets: Once the humbugs have  cooled and firmed up, gather them in your hands to break them into individual sweets.
  8. Deburring Process: Sieve the final sweets to eliminate any sharp edges.
  9. Packaging: Your finished humbug candies are now ready for packaging.
