Last year, while in Africa I had a Crunchie bar ((which I haven’t been able to find AT ALL in the States…)). Wanting to duplicate the experience, I decided to try my hand at making sponge candy. Actually, I’ve tried it several times, all utter failures. The first time, the candy burned and other tries have resulted in flat candy, candy that stuck unmercifully to the pan/wax paper, and candy that had cooled too much before transferring it.
Has anyone made successful sponge candy? How do you keep it from sticking? Does parchment paper work? What are your secrets for making this candy a success?
