DIRECTIONS

  • Heavily butter a 9" x 13" pan.
  • In a large, heavy kettle, add the sugar, dark corn syrup and vinegar.
  • Stir just to mix ingredients.
  • Place kettle over medium heat.
  • DO NOT STIR!
  • Boil mixture until it reaches 300 degrees on a candy thermometer.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Stir in the baking soda. Mixture will fizz!
  • Mix baking soda in well and pour into the prepared pan.
  • DO NOT TRY TO SPREAD MIXTURE.
  • Trying to spread it will break the foam, just plop it in the pan.
  • Cool and break into pieces.
  • Melt chocolate chips in top of double boiler (a bowl placed in a pan of simmering water works fine as does the microwave).
  • Dip candy in chocolate sit on wire rack (or if like me, you don't have one, set it on waxed paper).
