Yes it can, but in a microwave safe container and I would personally cover the container since if the honey gets on the inside of the microwave it will not be easy to clean up.

Be aware that heating honey destroys the healthful enzymes contained in it. It can be more healthful to eat raw honey. Microwaving honey can also alter its taste. To make hardened honey return to a liquid state, put the container in a bowl of hot water for 15 minutes.
