Taste This! Sponge Candy!

Wendy Rusch


I love Sponge Candy! Okay, I love all candy and things of a sweet nature!!! :o) But anyway, I was always afraid to make this, I mean, that sponge stuff had to be hard I thought, I had never even looked at a recipe for it. I just don't like to deal with things that are touchy and precise, which I totally assumed sponge candy was...Then a friend whom don't like to make candy for that same reason told me she made some and it was easy...I was like no way!!! So I had to try it and tweak it of course, wouldn't be me not to! Sorry I can't help it.
So here ya go, I hope you enjoy it!

How to Make Taste This! Sponge Candy!


  • 1Butter a 9x13 pan, bottom and sides. Set aside.
  • 2In a heavy saucepan, over medium heat, stir together syrup, molasses, sugar and vinegar. Continue stirring constantly until sugar dissolves and starts to boil. Once mixture comes to a full boil, stop stirring, but continue to cook at medium heat, no stirring, until candy thermometer reaches 300 degrees.
  • 3Remove from heat and stir in 1 Tablespoon of baking soda. Pour into prepared pan, DO NOT spread, it will spread itself. You don't want to deflate it.
    Allow to cool. Break into desired size pieces.
  • 4Over a double boiler...melt together 2 cups milk chocolate chips, 1 cup semi sweet chips and 2-3 tsp vegetable oil. Dip cooled pieces of sponge in chocolate, place on wax paper to dry.
  • 5*Of course you can use your favorite chocolate combination...that is just my favorite.
