Why I Love This Recipe

Haven't made this yet but I plan on doing so.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup sugar
1 cup dark corn syrup
1 tbsp. vinegar
1 tbsp. baking soda


Combine sugar, syrup and vinegar in a large heavy saucepan.

Cook over medium heat until mixture reaches 290 - 310 degrees on a candy thermometer.

Remove pan from heat and add baking soda, stirring quickly to mix.

Pour candy into a buttered 9 x 9 x 2” buttered pan.

Let candy spread itself.

When cool break into pieces.

Coat with dipping chocolate if you wish.
