Golden syrup is a pale treacle that is made during the refining of sugar and is approximately 56% invert syrup(a mixture of glucose and fructose) and 44% sucrose. It is a chiefly British product and the most famous brand is Lyle's Golden Syrup, which comes in a green and golden tin with a lion on it.
You cannot replace golden syrup exactly, but some substitutes that should work are: Combine two parts light corn syrup plus one part molasses OR equal parts honey and corn syrup OR maple syrup (This is thinner, and not as sweet.) OR dark corn syrup (This is thnner and not as sweet as golden syrup. If you like, try reducing the corn syrup in a saucepan to thicken it.) OR light corn syrup (This is thnner and not as sweet or flavorful as golden syrup. If you like, try reducing the corn syrup in a saucepan to thicken it.) (Taken from foodsubs.com)

Making chocolate cornflake nests for easter and the recipe calls for golden syrup. I don't cook with it often so are there any alternatives to sweeten my plain melted chocolate?
