This candy always brings back memories of my childhood in mining country. It is so easy to make and you can choose if you want it chocolate coated or not.—Dean&Deluca Wichita Corporate Copywriter, Lisa Henshall, Wichita, Kansas
- 2 teaspoons butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup dark corn syrup
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 1 tablespoon baking soda
- 1 package (11-1/2 ounces) milk chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon shortening
- Line a 13-in. x 9-in. pan with foil and grease the foil with butter; set aside. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup and vinegar. Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil. Cook, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 300° (hard-crack stage).
- Remove from the heat; stir in baking soda. Immediately pour into prepared pan. Do not spread candy. Cool. Using foil, lift candy out of pan. Gently peel off foil; break candy into pieces.
- In a microwave, melt chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip candies in the chocolate mixture, allowing excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 2 pounds.
