Sponge Candy Recipe

Looking for recipe for a candy, which was sponge like and the size of a 1 pd. loaf of butter, yellow in color, and melted in your mouth. Checked many stores that have the old fashioned candy, but to no avail. I've made the sponge candy but it's not the same, very hard. I wish I had an image to show you. This was way back in the 40's and 50's.

The recipe posted by maddhatterr is the one you want. It can also be found on astray recipes, then just type in sponge candy. The good old original one. We have a retro candy store in our city and I buy this every once in a while.

The recipies here seem to be like that for peanut brittle without the peanuts. I thought the person said the candy was like a sponge.

I am looking for a recipe for sponge candy. The old fashioned sponge candy. I once had the recipe but have lost it. I would really love to get it again. Does anyone know how it is done? Or is it a lost art?
