Mine Run Candy
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 20 min. + cooling
I LOVE this candy. I believe it will become a Christmas regular. I like it best without the chocolate. I used 3/4 cup of light corn syrup and 1/4 cup molasses because I didn't have dark syrup. I think the molasses gave it a great taste. Thanks for the recipe.
I make this every Christmas and everyone loves it. One thing I learned to do is sift the baking soda because if lumps are in it you get pieces that are very bitter. The baking soda has to be spread as evenly as humanly possible in the seconds you have to stir it.
I have made this recipe several times. The first time, I made it exactly as the recipe said and dipped it in chocolate. I found the candy to be slightly bitter, but I loved the texture. Ever since that first time, I have added essential oil to the base candy. Simply add 1/2 tsp - 1 tsp (depending how strong you want it to taste) essential oil of your choice when you add the baking soda and it cuts the bitterness of the candy & adds more flavor. My favorites are wintergreen & cherry. I do not dip it in chocolate, but you could always dip it in chocolate, if you choose a flavor that goes well with chocolate.

Turned out pretty good. Some pieces tasted better than others and next time I will use a 9 inch square pan to get thicker more even pieces.
I made it last night and broke it apart today.....I am not sure I like the taste...It tastes kind of bitter to me....Before I dip it in chocolate, I would like to know if the chocolate makes it taste better Please email me if you will [email protected]
Very good, alot like the Irish honey comb candy bars. A bit sticky on the teeth though.
The only reason that this candy was at all enjoyable for my family was the milk chocolate coating. The thicker pieces of candy (i.e. more “honeycomb”) were not even a little enjoyable. I like the texture of the honeycomb and the coating, but didn’t enjoy the taste of the honeycomb itself. I will not be making this again.
I wonder if this was originally made with molasses instead of dark corn syrup that the recipe calls for and why it lacked taste.
It was easy to make, The candy had almost no flavor. My husband who will eat anything didn't go back for another piece.
