Doris' Sea Foam © 1976

2 cups light brown sugar
3 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup dark corn syrup
1 1/2 cup water
2 egg whites
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts

Cook sugars, corn syrups, and water to 238º F. Combine salt and egg whites and beat until stiff peaks form.

Pour cooked mixture slowly into egg whites beating continuously. Continue beating until candy loses its gloss and holds its shape when dropped from a spoon.

Add vanilla during the latter part of beating. Blend in nuts with a spoon. Drop pieces the size of a teaspoon on waxed paper or buttered cookie sheet, or pour all the candy into a buttered pan and cut when set.

I'll tell you what is just so weird about this. Two days ago I told Heather "I wish I had some seafoam." She said "WHY?" I said, "Grandma used to make it and I just would like to eat a piece." After I find some dark corn syrup at the store, I can!

Terri-
That is weird! How random is that? Coolio may have his mind on his money and his money on his mind, but apparently we have our minds on sea foam candy! LOL! I've never tried it, but it sounds a little but like divinity.

I'm glad you're gonna make some! :D

OMG, I LOVE seaform candy. Never even thought about making it at home (even though I've done other types of seafoam). Oh, this is NOT good for my diet!
