    Is golden syrup the same as Karo light syrup? It is clear, but I can’t think of another syrup that might work?

      Hi Lynda,

      You could definitely use corn syrup but it wouldn’t provide the same flavour that golden syrup does. I would recommend honey, maple syrup or treacle as a replacement if you have it available.

      Let us know how it turns out!
