    Hey guys! New here, looking for some wonderful, experienced advice. Not sure if this is where I should have posted this! I bought some sponge toffee, thinking I would add it into my basic chocolate fudge recipe. I know nothing about sponge toffee, can this be done? I've been putting my fudge in silicon candy molds so I was thinking I would just mix in smashed pieces of it to my fudge, right before pouring into molds. Will this work? Or will it disintegrate or melt into the fudge? Thanks!!

    I have put the too small leftover pieces of regular toffee in fudge. It was good for a day or two but after that it absorbed moisture and wasn't crunchy anymore.  Given the the lack of butter in most sponge toffee, plus the air holes, I would guess it will break down faster.

    If your molds make bite sized pieces, I would definitely try it in a few though. Then you can see how long it lasts. If you plan on eating it fast enough it would be a yummy treat.
