Before I moved to Western New York, I had no idea what sponge candy was. It didn’t take long for it to become one of my favorite ways to eat chocolate!
It’s a square with a sponge-like consistency in the middle that’s coated in chocolate. For National Sponge Candy Day earlier this week, I got a behind the scenes look at how it’s made from start to finish at Platter’s Chocolate Factory in North Tonawanda. A pretty sweet assignment 😉
Sponge Candy was born in Western New York, and Platter’s even has a connection to the famous Lucille Ball chocolate scene!
