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!

Step-by-Step

  1. Butter a 9x13 pan, bottom and sides. Set aside.
  2. In 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.
  3. Remove 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.
  4. Over 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.
