ANGEL FOOD CANDY   # 1  >Back to Top<

1 cup Sugar
1 cup Dark corn syrup
1 tablespoon Vinegar
1 tablespoon Baking soda
1 pound Chocolate almond bark, melted

In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup and vinegar. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves. Cook without stirring until the temperature reaches 300 (hard crack stage) on a candy thermometer. Do not overcook.

Remove from the heat and quickly stir in baking soda. Pour into a buttered 13 x 9 x 2 -inch baking pan. When cool, break into bite-size pieces. Dip into melted chocolate; place on waxed paper until the chocolate is firm. Store candy tightly covered. Yield: 1-1/2 pounds


Angel Food Candy # 2

2 T. melted butter
1 c. Dark Corn Syrup
1 c. granulated sugar
1 T. cider vinegar
1 T. baking soda
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 T. shortening

Line a 9x13 pan with aluminum foil. Brush with melted butter and set aside.

In a large pot, mix corn syrup, sugar, and vinegar. Cook on stove top over med-high heat until it reaches hard crack stage, 300 degrees F. DO NOT STIR.

As soon as the temperature reaches 300 degrees, stir in the baking soda, mixing quickly. DON'T bang the pan around too much. This needs to be light and airy. Think 'soufflé.'

Pour this mixture into the foil-lined pan. DO NOT SPREAD IT. Let it rise, and leave it alone while it cools to room temperature.


Angel Food Candy # 3

1-1/2 teaspoons butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup dark corn syrup
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 tablespoon baking soda
1/2 pound white candy coating, melted
1/2 pound dark chocolate candy coating, melted

Butter a 13-in. x 9-in. pan 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. Cook, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 290° (soft-crack stage).

Remove from the heat; stir in baking soda. Pour into prepared pan but do not spread; cool. Break into pieces.

Dip each candy halfway into white candy coating; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets until set. Dip plain half of candies into dark chocolate coating; allow excess to drip off. Return to waxed paper until set. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 1-1/2 pounds.


Angel Food Candy (aka Sponge Candy) #4

1 cup sugar
1 cup dark corn syrup
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 tablespoon baking soda
2-3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
2-3 tablespoons canola oil

Generously coat an 8x8" pan with cooking spray; set aside. In medium size saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, and vinegar. Using medium-high heat, stir constantly until sugar is dissolved and mixture has started to bubble. Attach candy thermometer to pan and continue to cook mixture to 300 degrees, without stirring. Remove from heat and quickly stir in baking soda just until well combined and evenly colored throughout. Pour immediately into prepared pan and leave undisturbed. Don't spread or smooth it in the pan; it will even out on its own. It's normal for the mixture to rise and then fall some in the pan. Let cool completely. Flip pan over and shake gently to remove block of candy. Use a knife to cut and jab candy into pieces. Pieces will be irregular shapes.

In microwave-safe bowl, combine 2 tablespoons canola oil and 2 cups chocolate chips. Cook at full power in microwave, stopping and stirring in 20 second intervals just until completely melted (approx. 60 seconds total). Dip 1/3 to 1/2 of each candy piece in melted chocolate and place on parchment or wax paper until cool and hardened. Melt remaining chocolate chips and oil, if needed. Store in airtight container.

Remove from the heat and add the baking chocolate, broken into small pieces, butter, and pecans. Return to the heat, stirring constantly, and cook to the soft ball stage (234 degrees F.).

Remove from the heat, add the vanilla, then cool the mixture for 5 minutes.

Beat for 10 to 15 seconds until the mixture slightly thickens. Quickly drop candy, by large spoonfuls onto greased plates or waxed paper. If the mixture becomes too thick to drop, stir in a tablespoonful of hot water. Makes about 2 dozen pieces.


Creamy Pecan Pralines

1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons water
1 cup pecan halves

In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the light brown sugar, granulated sugar, heavy cream, butter, and water. Place over a medium-high heat and stir constantly until the pralines reach the softball stage, 238 to 240 degrees F. Add the pecans to the candy, and pull the pan off of the stove. Continue to stir the candy vigorously with a wooden spoon until the candy cools, and the pecans remain suspended in the candy, about 2 minutes. Spoon the pralines out onto a parchment or aluminum foil lined sheet pan and cool completely before serving.





450 grams good quality plain chocolate, chopped
4 tablespoons dark rum
5 tablespoons golden syrup
600 milliliters double cream
cocoa powder to finish

Begin by oiling a 25 centimeters loose based or spring clip round cake tin and lining the base with non stick baking parchment. Put the chocolate, rum, and golden syrup in a bowl over a pan of simmering (not boiling) water and stir until melted. Remove the bowl and allow to cool slightly. Whip the cream lightly until it just holds its shape and fold one third into the chocolate mixture. Fold in the rest of the cream and pour into the prepared tin. Tap the tin to release any air bubbles and cover with cling film. Chill for several hours or overnight. Remove from the tin, place on a serving plate and dredge with sieved cocoa powder.

3 tablespoons invert sugar *
1/3 cup candied fruit, chopped (cherries and pineapple)
1/3 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
3 cups sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 dash salt
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons marshmallow cream
Dipping chocolate

In a small saucepan, combine invert sugar, fruit and nuts. Stir and boil for 2-3 minutes; drain, reserving liquid. Combine liquid, sugar, corn syrup, salt and water in a 2-quart saucepan. Cover tightly and bring to a boil. Uncover and place a candy thermometer in pan; cook to 250°F. Pour candy out on a marble slab and cool to lukewarm. Work candy with spatula until it is opaque. Add vanilla and marshmallow cream. Continue to paddle candy until creamy. Add prepared fruit and nuts; knead into candy. Form into egg shapes and let stand a couple of hours. Dip in chocolate.

* buy invert sugar at cake and decorating stores. This is excellent for making Easter eggs but you can also make candy bars by patting candy into a square on waxed paper, cutting into bars and dip in chocolate. Servings: 16




1 square unsweetened chocolate
1/4 cup evaporated milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon artificial liquid sweetener
1 package vanilla or chocolate artificially sweetened pudding powder or 8 teaspoon finely chopped nuts

Melt chocolate in top of double boiler over boiling water. Add evaporated milk and mix. Cook 2-3 minutes, then add vanilla and sweetener. Spread on small foil pie pan or plate. Chill. Cut into 8 pieces. Form into egg-shaped balls and then roll lightly in pudding powder or chopped nuts. Servings: 8




4 ounces semisweet/sweet dark chocolate, chopped
1-1/2 tablespoons whipping cream
1/8 teaspoon almond extract
20 silver or disposable plastic spoons
4 ounces vanilla-flavored candy coating, melted

Combine chocolate and whipping cream in a 1-cup liquid measuring cup.
Microwave at MEDIUM (50% power) 1 minute or until chocolate melts, stirring after 30 seconds. Stir in almond extract. Dip each spoon in the melted chocolate, covering bowl of spoon and 1/4 inch up the handle; allow excess to drip off.
Place spoons on wax paper-lined baking sheet; freeze 15 minutes or until set. Place candy coating in a heavy-duty, zip-lock plastic bag. Microwave at MEDIUM (50% power) 1 minute to melt. Snip a tiny hole in one corner of the bag, and drizzle coating over chilled spoons. Leave on wax paper, and store in refrigerator until serving.

Try a chocolate dipped spoon for stirring your coffee. The chocolate melts at the same leisurely pace you drink your coffee. With occasionally stirring, you get extra chocolate flavor from the bottom of the cup.




6 ounces high-quality bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup half-and-half
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
Pinch of salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 tablespoon bourbon or light rum
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 ounces high-quality white chocolate
1 cup chopped pecans, walnuts, or hazelnuts (skins removed), toasted

Mold a piece of foil around the outside bottom of a 9-inch square pan. The foil needs to be large enough that at least two of the sides overhang the edges of the pan. Turn the pan over and arrange the foil inside the pan. (Molding the foil over the outside first cuts down on wrinkles.) Gently grease the foil, preferably with vegetable oil spray, to avoid wrinkling it.

Combine the chocolate, sugar, cream, half-and-half, corn syrup, and salt in a large heavy saucepan. Warm over medium heat, scraping up from the bottom a few times to combine the mixture as the sugar dissolves and the chocolate melts. Bring to a boil, then continue cooking without stirring until it reaches 236 degrees F to 240 degrees F, the "soft ball" stage. Immediately remove from the heat, then place on top of the mixture, without stirring, the butter, bourbon, and vanilla. Allow the fudge to cool to 100 degrees F to 115 degrees F.

While the mixture cools, melt the white chocolate over low heat and keep it warm.

When the fudge has reached the proper temperature, stir in the butter, bourbon, and vanilla. Mix in the nuts. If you have a marble pastry board or cool stone counter, spoon the fudge out onto it. Less preferable, but still acceptable, is just to leave it in the saucepan. Knead the fudge with a candy or dough scraper, turning it over on itself until it begins to hold its shape and lose its shine, about 5 minutes. The fudge also begins to make a snapping noise when it reaches the proper point. If your fudge is in the saucepan, stir briskly with a wooden spoon until it reaches this point. Immediately turn the fudge into the prepared pan and smooth the surface.

Quickly spoon the white chocolate in dollops over the fudge. With a knife, swirl the white chocolate into the fudge in a marble pattern. Let the fudge cool and set for at least 2 hours before slicing it. Invert the pan and peel away the foil. The fudge can be cut into any size portions, though we usually cut it into 6 slices across and down, for 36 pieces. The fudge keeps for a week to 10 days stored airtight at room temperature. If you stack the fudge, separate it with wax paper in between the layers. In warm weather, it keeps better stored in the refrigerator. MAKES A 9-INCH PAN, ABOUT 3 DOZEN PIECES

Technique Tip: One of the best uses for a microwave is melting chocolate. One to two minutes at 50 percent power will soften most oversize chocolate bars or a 12-ounce bag of chips. Stir and use.

In the late nineteenth century, students at New England women's colleges adopted fudge as their own special candy, cooking it initially over gas lamps in dormitory rooms. They probably provided the name too, meaning to cheat a little, since they made the fudge at parties after "lights out." We've tried innumerable chocolate versions-using recipes from Vassar and Wellesley colleges, Irma Rombauer, Mamie Eisenhower, Maida Heatter, and our dental hygienist, Joanne Stenzhorn. We've liked them all, even many of the widely circulated shortcut variations, but we haven't found any to compare ultimately with the classic boiled, beaten, and slab-kneaded fudge featured here. (If you're content with the classic single chocolate fudge, simply ignore the white chocolate marbled topping.)




1 pound Confectioners sugar
2 tablespoons Water
1 tablespoon Light corn syrup
1 tablespoon Butter; softened
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Almond extract
1 pinch Cream of tartar

Combine sugar, water, corn syrup, butter and vanilla. Add the salt, almond extract and cream of tartar. This mixture will be crumbly. Add the coconut.

Shape into eggs (whatever size you want). Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over low heat. Cool a little and then frost the Easter eggs.




3 pounds confectioners sugar
7 ounces flakes coconut
1/8 pound melted butter
6 ounces evaporated milk

Spike's & Jamie's Recipes






5-6 Granny Smith apples (make sure they can stand on their own)
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp. brown sugar
pie crust (homemade or pre-made)

1) Preheat oven to 375F.

2) Cut off the top of 4 apples off and discard. Remove the inside of each apple with a spoon or melon baller very carefully, as to not puncture the peel.

If you’re a skilled interior apple excavator, salvage as much as you can so you can use it for Step 2. I, on the other hand, am not skilled so I just had to throw my interior apples away and chop up additional apples for filling.

3) Remove skin from remaining apple(s) and slice very thinly. These apple pieces will give you the additional filling needed to fill the four apples you are baking.

Mix sliced apples with sugars and cinnamon in a bowl. If you prefer more or less cinnamon make adjustments as desired. Same goes for the sugar.

Scoop sliced apples into hollow apples.

4) Roll out pie crust and slice into 1/4 inch strips. You can also add a strip of pastry inside the top of the apple almost like a liner to add a little more texture/sweetness to the pie.

Cover the top of the apple in a lattice pattern with pie crust strips.

5) Place apples in an 8×8 pan. Add just enough water to the cover the bottom of the pan.

Cover with foil and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Remove foil and bake for an additional 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and sliced apples are soft.

Makes 4 baked apple pies (in the apple).
