Sponge Toffee Recipe 


 1 cup water 

3 1/2 cups sugar 

1 1/2 cups of corn syrup – I used golden 

 1 1/2 tbsp honey  5 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp cream of tartar *sift baking soda and cream of tartar

 Prep: Have all your ingredients measured and ready.  Line your baking sheet with parchment paper so that it goes beyond the sides of your pan. You really need a candy thermometer AND do NOT stir just let it cook and watch the temperature.

284 & 300 degrees are your important numbers.


First add water to a large pot, then sugar and corn syrup.

Bring to a gentle boil & cook until the mixture reaches 284 degrees 

Add honey to pot – don’t stir. Allow mixture to climb to 300 degrees, remove from heat 

Add the sifted baking soda & cream of tartar with a wooden spoon, stir vigorously until baking soda is dissolved 

Stop mixing and carefully add candy to your lined pan.

Allow to cool 2 hours Remove from pan and break into pieces using the end of a rolling pin.

Dip into melted chocolate if desired.

Add this treat to your Thanksgiving dessert table and before you know it, you’ll be making this for Christmas too!
