Have you ever thought that hokey pokey was like lava?Well your question will be answered.
Mr Hunia added two ingredients.Trying to dissolve the sugar with golden syrup ,he stirred it constantly as though it were a race against time.Finally after dissolving the sugar and mixing constantly, there was a change of colour to darker gold and it turned to liquid.This reminded me of molten rock(magma). It expands due to the pressure. The hokey pokey increased in size when we put 6 teaspoons of Baking soda which caused a chemical reaction, creating air bubbles/pockets.
When Hokey Pokey is scolding hot,It is goey and free flowing.It becomes cold,it turns into a brittle substance and it is very fragile.(Broken Easily).It looked like broken up pieces of rock.
After waiting for a few moments,the hokey pokey started to cool down and turn brittle.This reminded me of lava being cooled down and hardenening.Mr hunia quickly scraped out the hokey pokey from the pot and transferring it to a baking tray covered with butter.I saw shattered bits resembling.
Speaking of hokey pokey,thinking of it makes me dream of scoria rock being thrown in the sky and out of the volcano's vent.
