Freezing Treacle (Corn syrup)?

SmartCookie | Mar 22, 201504:09 PM 5

I have several friends who loved a recipe I made for ANZAC Biscuits that calls for 2 T of Lyle's Golden Syrup. The tin I bought is large and would love to give them 2 T frozen nuggets instead of having to buy tiny jars. Would this freeze solid in, say, a ice cube tray, or would it remain sticky? Google hasn't given me a definitive answer.

      But I think with the viscosity and the sugar content it won't freeze. (think about "slower than molasses in January" -- if it doesn't freeze in January, it's not going to freeze in your freezer, either - it just gets stickier and more viscous)

        Totally agree on the bag. Given the viscosity a Ziploc sandwich bag would be fine. If you measure exactly then they can cut off a corner of the bag and squeeze it cleanly into the recipe.

        Ditto to the other comments. Golden syrup, like honey, is close to 100% various sugars and bugs can't live in it. FWIW it's not treacle - treacle is molasses.
