Seasonal Sunday: Angel Food Candy.

It is that time of year. Cookies and candy fill our thoughts. I can't wait to share will you some old and new favorites. Here is a classic.

Angel Food Candy

Go get it:

1 cup dark corn syrup
1 cup sugar (white or brown works, although I have not tried using brown)
1 T white vinegar
1 T baking soda
chocolate for dipping

Go make it:

Combine all ingredients except baking soda in a heavy saucepan. Over medium heat stir until sugar is dissolved. Once sugar is dissolved stop stirring. Continue cooking undisturbed until it reaches 300 degrees F. Don't worry the stinky vinegar smell goes away fast. While waiting for temperature to rise prepare a 9x13 pan by greasing or lining with parchment paper. Once it reaches 300 degrees remove from heat and add baking soda. Stir until soda is evenly mixed in. Do not over stir, though. You need to act fast as mixture cools it will harden. Pour into prepared pan. Let cool. After it is cool break into pieces. Dip pieces in melted chocolate. My favorite is dark, but you can use white or milk.
