Behind the Apron - Tip #1 SPONGE CANDY

As with all recipes, be sure to measure out all the ingredients before you begin your adventure into diy sponge candy. Timing is very important when working with melted sugar... Once the temp reaches 300, add the baking soda until incorporated transfer immediately into the prepared pan. The idea is to control the time that the mixture is in the heat (the pan). 

We often have discussions over the difficulty of certain baking techniques, but the truth is: READ THE RECIPE!! Don't go into anything blindfolded and don't let your excitement for the finished product cause you to rush! As Grandma Pearl recently said, "haste makes waste!"

We encourage you to try your hand in making your own sponge candy! It will be a perfect gift and lovely surprise to celebrate the arrival of spring!

Here's the recipe made simple:
1. boil the sugar, etc until 300 degrees F
2. mix in 2 tablespoons of baking soda
3. pour into paper and oiled pan
4. let cool completely and add your favorite chocolate :) 

Good luck!!
