This is the easiest candy to make! It is my Dad's favorite candy. But it is so expensive to purchase in the stores.
Old Fashioned Sponge Candy
1 Cup sugar
1 cup dark corn syrup (I used light)
1 Tablespoon cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon baking soda
1 bag of chocolate chips
Heat sugar, corn syrup, and vinegar to a boil in 2 quart pan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved.
Boil without stirring, until candy thermometer registers 300F.
Remove pan from the heat; stir in baking soda quickly and mix thoroughly.
Pour mixture in ungreased 13 x 9 baking pan. Do not spread out.
Let cool and break into pieces. Coat with melted chocolate.
I did coat a few of the candy completely in chocolate.
But since I don't really care for chocolate, I only did half this way. This makes a lot of candy. ENJOY!
