  • 1 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1 cup regular granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda sifted
  • Dark chocolate chopped (up to a pound)


  • Line a 9x13 inch baking pan with nonstick foil.
  • In a medium saucepan (mine was 3 quarts) over medium heat, combine sugar, corn syrup and vinegar and stir for about 3 minutes or until sugar dissolves and mixture appears shiny and smooth. Continue cooking over medium heat, without stirring, to 300 degrees on a candy thermometer. At exactly 300 degrees, remove from heat and stir in baking soda. Pour into prepared pan and let it fan out, but do not spread. Let the candy cool, then break it into chunks.
  • Melt the chocolate in the microwave using 50% power and stirring every 30 seconds or in the top of a double boiler. Dip chunks of candy in the chocolate and let it set.
