I love these products and think you will too! I am so excited to finally have a recipe for sponge candy to share with you! I have been testing out recipes and techniques for months now. I have had many failed batches and have spent quite a bit of time scrubbing scorched sugar out of pans. I am a total newb to candy making, and I tried at least 4 different recipes twice before I found one I was happy to share with you.
If you are from Upstate New York, particularly the Buffalo Region, there is probably no explanation needed. If you have never had sponge candy, maybe you just know it by another name. I actually attempted this recipe a few times before moving on, it resulted in a flat candy with little aeration and was a no go for me. It did, and that is putting it mildly. It is shocking is how long sponge candy can and will continue to expand, even after it has been poured in a pan. Big mess would be an understatement for what happened in my kitchen that day.
With each and every attempt I was beginning to grasp the concept of candy making, and also discover where my challenges were coming from. I quickly realized with each and every single attempt, though, was that my smooth top electric stove lacked precise temperature control, and even heating, which was where the majority of my problems stemmed from.
All of my problems were easily fixed with a cheap candy thermometer. If sponge candy is your first venture into candy making, I can not strongly enough suggest picking up a thermometer, especially if you have an electric stove. I can also see where an induction cook-top would be very handy in this process if you have one. I had a NuWave Precision Induction Cooktopbut sadly, it mysteriously just quit working before I began my quest to make sponge candy, has anyone else had this problem?

After the sponge has set, the real fun begins! It is fun to snap the candy into that well-known cube shape, and a good job for kids who want to be involved. Coating the sponge candy in chocolate helps protect the delicate sponge from humidity, and tastes delicious. You can use milk or dark chocolate, to suit your tastes or mood. Melting wafers are especially easy-to-use, with minimal fuss the wafers ensure a smooth and even melting. Candy making can be tricky, but now that I have some basic skills and knowledge under my belt, I will be whipping these candies up as gifts around Christmas time for friends and family, I think they will be pleasantly surprised, or not if they read my blog.

So awesomely wonderful! Any suggestions? The recipe that you have is very close to what we use for our store if not exact,but for ours we cook our temperature the and if it's raining out or high humidity the sponge won't rise.
Pedro Robles, wow! Thank you! That temp is important! I just saw this after making my 2nd batch. I made your recipe and was so excited as it looked perfect as it hit the pan. But then still after few 5 hours it was one big blob of toffee. Tasted good but not sponge candy. When you whip after adding gelatin and baking soda how long do you whip it for? Please share some advice. Jeanette Dennis Eddery, this happened to me the first time I tried making this candy. Did you happen to use a copper pan? Jeanette Dennis Eddery, 60 second whip the gelatin then whip the baking soda but also humidity and temperature will change sponge candy.
I tried a different recipe without gelatin and ended up with toffee bark. This recipe was great!
I slowly in creased the stove temperature to get the boil temperature to without burning it. Hey there, I'm so glad you are here! I love to write about life in Upstate, our family favorite meals, regional recipes, and stories from our family farm. Instructions Line a 9x9 pan with parchment paper, with extra paper hanging over the sides. Alternatively, butter and dust the pan with flour. Tapping out the excess flour. In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over 1 tablespoon cold water and allow to bloom. Heat over medium heat and stir until sugar dissolves and mixture comes to a boil.
Clip on candy thermometer onto the side of the saucepan and cook without stirring until the syrup reaches F. Remove from heat and let sit for two minutes undisturbed, the bubbling will subside, and the temperature will drop. Add gelatin and whisk, be careful, the sugar syrup will bubble up. Sprinkle baking soda over syrup and whisk vigorously. Return mixture to the heat and whisk for 30 seconds. The sugar will expand in the pot, a lot! Quickly pour into prepared pan, it should come out in a big blob. Do not spread the mixture, just let it settle into the pan.
Leave the pan undisturbed, and allow the candy to cool completely about 2 hours or overnight before removing from the pan. Either break into odd pieces or cut into squares.
This is an incredibly messy process, but fun! To cut into squares - using a serrated knife, score the candy at 1-inch intervals. Snap the candy apart at the score lines. Then score and break into squares. Melt chocolate melts in a double boiler or bowl sitting above a pot of boiling water. Dip sponge candies in chocolate, tap off excess. Chill in the fridge to set the chocolate shell. Recommended Products As an Amazon Associate and member of other affiliate programs, I earn from qualifying purchases.
