Next up is a fun recipe, that reminds me of that fun scientific project we all had to try as kids, where you mix baking soda and vinegar. This is a candy recipe, and you get to eat the results. This is also known as angel food candy, as it somehow resembles angel food cake, I suppose.
- 1 C sugar
- 1 C corn syrup
- 1 Tbs vinager
- 2 Tbs baking soda
- dipping chocolate
Combine sugar, syrup and vinegar in a heavy sauce pan. Cook at medium heat, and stir until the sugar dissolves. Using a candy thermometer, watch for the candy to heat to 300.
While waiting for the candy to heat, grease a jelly roll pan. Once the candy hits 300, remove from heat. Stir in baking soda using a wooden spoon. Pour immediately into the pan - do not stir.
Let it cool for an hour. Then, break into pieces. Melt chocolate, and dip each piece in, and dry on wax paper.
