  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Cook: 20 min. + cooling
  • Makes
    about 1-1/4 pounds


  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1/2 pound dark chocolate candy coating, coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon shortening, divided
  • 1/2 pound milk chocolate candy coating, coarsely chopped


  • Line a 9-in. square pan with foil and grease foil with butter; set aside. In a large heavy saucepan, combine 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 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 dark chocolate coating and 1/2 teaspoon shortening; stir until smooth. Dip half the candies in the melted dark chocolate mixture, allowing excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set. Repeat with milk chocolate coating and remaining 1/2 teaspoon shortening and candies. Store in an airtight container.

    This was nice. You must use a Candy thermometer. In the future l would 1/2 the vinegar. Janet. VFE

    It might be my fault, but like the other reviewer, my candy got clear and hard on the bottom. I did note the temperature very carefully as I cooked it. And not sure why you need to add shortening to the chocolate candy melts. They are made to melt well and adhere.

    These were a big hit on my Christmas cookie and candy plates this year. Our family preferred the milk chocolate coating because the candy itself is not hugely sweet, but both were good!

    My wife loves sea foam and can't find any in the stores that isn't chocolate-coated. I decided to try making this for her without the chocolate. The texture was pretty close, but I may not have heated it correctly because the bottom of the mixture got a little burned, which made it taste bad. I will try this again, but keep stirring it for a little longer.
