Angel Food Candy
2 c Light Corn Syrup; Karo
2 c Brown Sugar; Firmly Packed
4 ts Baking Soda
4 oz Semi-Sweet Chocolate; Cut Up
12 oz Chocolate Chips; 1 Pk
1/4 c Butter Or Regular Margarine
NOTE: The first 4-Oz of semi sweet chocolate is in the block style. Also
the chocolate chips should be semi-sweet. * The paraffin should be a 2 1/2
X 3-inch piece that has been cut up.
Combine the corn syrup and brown sugar in a 4-quart heavy Dutch oven. Cook
over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture boils. Continue
cooking the mixture until it reaches the hard crack stage (300 degrees F)
on the candy thermometer, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and
carefully stir in the baking soda being careful as the mixture will foam
up. Pour the mixture at once in to a greased 13 X 9 X 2-inch baking pan.
When cool, turn out of the pan.
Break into pieces using a meat mallet or wooden spoon. Combine the
semi-sweet chocolate pieces and the chocolate chips, butter and paraffin
wax in the top of a double boiler. Place over simmering water, stirring
until melted. Remove form the heat, but keep over the hot water. Dip the
candy into the chocolate using a large cooking fork. Place on waxed paper
lined baking sheets. Let stand until chocolate is set. Store the candy in
cool place in covered containers. If you wish, do not coat the candy with
the chocolate Candy can be stored for several months in the freezer.
Makes 3 pounds of candy.
