Seafoam

Today is my sweet little girl's seventh birthday.
Let me just tell you...
I am spoiling her rotten!
She deserves it, I tell you! There is not a sweeter, more helpful, more wonderful girl out there!
Do you know what she said to me last night when I told her I was sad that she wasn't going to be six anymore in the morning?
"It's okay mom, I will be seven, and seven year olds are bigger, and that means I can help you more."
Ahhhh!
I spent all my pennies on presents for her, and I might even make her (and my) favorite candy and let her eat it all up.

This is the recipe for Seafoam-one of the tastiest chocolate confections. It has an airy honeycomb taste, covered in milk chocolate...yummmmmm!

2 teaspoons butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup dark corn syrup
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 package (11-1/2 ounces) milk chocolate chips
1 tablespoon shortening


Directions:

  • Line a 13-in. x 9-in. pan with foil and grease the foil with butter; set aside.
  • In a large heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup and vinegar. Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.
  • Bring to a boil. Cook, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 300° (hard-crack stage).
  • Remove from the heat; stir in baking soda.
  • Immediately pour into prepared pan.
  • Do not spread candy. Cool.
  • Using foil, lift candy out of pan. Gently peel off foil; break candy into pieces.
  • In a microwave, melt chips and shortening; stir until smooth.
  • Dip candies in the chocolate mixture, allowing excess to drip off.
  • Place on waxed paper; let stand until set. Store in an airtight container.

Yield: 2 pounds.

Thanks so much for the recipe! I figured it sounded interesting, so I decided to try it, even though I'd never heard of sea foam before. However, once I tasted it, I recognized it as the sponge candy that is sold at the chocolate shop where I grew up! I didn't know you could make it! Thanks for the recipe! I'll have to make this when my Dad comes to visit... it's his favorite.
