Angel Food Candy Recipe
Dietary Candy Recipe
This is a standard recipe for angel food candy, which is naturally a low fat and low calorie sweet treat. It is, however, high in sugar so if you must watch sugar intake, you may need to bypass this one - or keep it for special occasions.
1 cup white sugar
1 cup dark corn syrup
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 pound chocolate confectioners' coating
Butter a 9 x 1-inch baking dish.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, corn syrup and vinegar. Cook, stirring, until sugar dissolves. Heat, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reaches 300 to 310-degrees. If you don't have a candy thermometer, until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard, brittle threads. Remove from heat and stir in baking soda. Pour into prepared pan; do not spread. Mixture will not fill pan. Allow to cool completely.
In the microwave or over a double boiler, melt coating chocolate, stirring frequently until smooth. Break cooled candy into bite sized pieces and dip into melted candy coating. Let set on waxed paper.
Store Angel Food Candy tightly covered.
