Angel Food Candy
Angel Food Candy Dipped in White and Dark Chocolate
I'm trying to make this Angel Food Candy, there only 4 ingredients - 1 cup sugar, 1 cup dark molasses, 1 Tbs. vinegar, and 1 Tbs. baking soda.
I cook until at hard crack stage then add the baking soda. If I wait too long to put in pan it puffs up in the baking pot and won't rise in the pan.
Angel Food Candy is really delicious. But, you're right. You do need to be pretty quick pouring it into the buttered baking pan.
For those interested in making some of this honeycomb type candy, here's the complete recipe with the added benefit of a chocolate coating.
Angel Food Candy RecipeIngredients Needed:
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup dark corn syrup
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 1 tablespoon baking soda
- 1 pound chocolate to melt for coating
- Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish and set aside.
- Combine sugar, corn syrup and vinegar in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves.
- Continue heating, without stirring, until temperature reaches 300 to 310 degrees F (149 to 154 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard, brittle threads.
- Remove from heat and stir in baking soda. Pour into buttered pan; do not spread. The mixture will not fill pan, but it will spread some naturally by itself. Allow the candy to cool completely before breaking into pieces.
- Melt your chosen chocolate over a double boiler or in the microwave. Stir well, and be careful not to overheat. You may want to melt two types of chocolate to give it an even more elegant look as in the photo above.
- Dip the bite-sized pieces into the melted chocolate and place them on a waxed paper lined tray to set. Store in an airtight container.
I guess the secret to this honeycomb candy is not to over handle it once you stir in the baking soda and pour out the mixture.
I must warn you, though, it can be very addictive!
