Double Caramel Sponge Candy

Roberto Caruso

Chatelaine Triple Tested

This delicious—and deliciously sweet—sponge candy has a caramel-honeycomb centre and is garnished with toffee bits.


  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/2 cup corn syrup

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1 tbsp baking soda

  • 1/4 cup Skor bits


  • Line a baking sheet with parchment. Stir sugar with corn syrup and vanilla in a deep medium-sized pot until combined. Put pot on the stove over medium-high. Do not stir again. Bring to a vigorous boil. Continue to boil until bubbles are brown-tinged, 4 min.

  • Remove from heat and immediately whisk in baking soda. Mixture will froth and expand. Pour out immediately onto prepared sheet. Let cool 2 min, then sprinkle toffee bits overtop.

  • Cool completely, then crack into pieces. Candy will keep well, stored in an airtight container, for up to 5 days.
