- 1 cup dark corn syrup
- 1 tablespoon white vinegar
- 1 tablespoon baking soda

Without the chocolate this is good ol' sponge toffee. I'd forgotten all about it until I saw this recipe. I used to make it with my sisters when I was young. The last time I made it was over 50 years ago. Now I'll make it for my children and grandchildren. Dipping the pieces in chocolate puts it over the top! I think it has to be kept in a tightly sealed container so it's out of sight until it goes out with goodies for guests.... otherwise the guests might not get any.! Thanks for sharing.

If I don’t have a thermometer, roughly how many minutes should it be cooked to reach the hard crack stage?

I didn’t realize making this candy was so easy! This was definitely the fave of all the holiday goodies I made this year. This will be added to my usual rotation of treats!

So many people on my xmas list love these than I could not dream of not making them every year. Lucky for me they are very easy to make. I have found it helpful to sift my baking soda thru a small sieve before adding so that it mixes in smoothly.
