“This candy is like the kind that people refer to as seafoam candy. It's crunchy and has a sugary-maple flavor. Just TRY to have only one piece!”

The recipe I use is 1 c. sugar, 1 c. dark corn syrup, 1 tbl. vinagar and 1 Tbl of soda. I bring the first 3 ing. to 300 deg. then add soda. I line a 9 x 13 pan with parchment paper and spray it with pam. When you pour the hot candy into the pan do not spread it. It will spread itself and let cool completely for about 1 hour before you remove it. After it has cooled remove from pan and remove parchment. Break into pieces. Dip into chocolate.This recipe does work if you follow the directions. Also invest in a candy themometor.

Finally! After a long, hard search for a good "Seafoam" candy recipe (not to mention three batches that turned out more like divinity than what I was trying to make), I have found it! After breaking the candy into pieces, I dipped them in chocolate like you would get if you bought this at the store. Yummy! By the way, to the people who complained about this being "too hard": it's supposed to be hard! That's why you cook it to the *hard crack* stage. One hint is to line your pan with foil and butter or spray it well so you can just lift the candy out when it's set.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! my younger sisters and brothers have a lot of food allergies, as well as being finicky eaters. but they gobbled this up at light speed! one promise that i'll make this turns them into ANGELS! i made it in the microwave n it turned out perfectly. I scaled the recipe to 1, would put it in for 11 second intervals, stirring after each one. for those who like it crunchy, i put it over ice, n those who like it chewy can wait for it to be cool enough to handle. Incredibly quick and easy! Wonderful maple flavor and you can play around with temperature and cooling time to alter consistancy.
