Sponge Candy

I used to make this candy for my step children quite a bit when they were little.
The video is this recipe method on a large scale, without divulging the actual recipe.

1 cup sugar
1 cup dark corn syrup
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp baking soda

Cook sugar, corn syrup and vinegar to 300 degrees on candy thermometer, stirring often. Remove from heat; add baking soda. Mix well (this foams up-use large pan). Pour into 13x9 inch pan, buttered lightly. DO NOT BUMP PAN OR STIR. Let cool, break into pieces.

Melt chocolate chips and dip the broken pieces of sponge candy. Set on waxed paper to dry.
