Honey and Apple Cider Vinegar Candy

Vinegar & Honey candy

Growing up in the south, we are raised with treats such as peanut brittle and pecan pralines. A few years ago, I began to experiment with honey and apple cider vinegar by changing a recipe to include these simple and healthier ingredients.  Some of our friends’ kids have nut allergies, so I just omitted the nuts.

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) has so many amazing purposes [link here], but I probably negate all of them cooking it this way! We do make a wonderful tea when we get in a funk that has ACV, honey, and hot water. So this is minus the water and it came out way better than expected.

This is such a fun treat for our family. It has a hard crunch that turns soft and surprisingly chewy in your mouth. Hopefully, you can enjoy this as much as we do. It’s a terrific and quick dessert to make for special gatherings because it plates beautifully.

Honey and Apple Cider Vinegar Candy


  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (optional)


  1. Pour the honey and vinegar into a heavy saucepan on medium heat.
  2. Stir until mixture starts to boil.
  3. Adjust the heat to keep a low boil until foamy or the temperature reaches 300ºF
  4. Remove from heat, add vanilla (if using).
  5. Pour immediately onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  6. Place in refrigerator to cool.
  7. Once completely chilled, break into bite size pieces.
  8. Store in fridge as they will soften at room temperature.
  9. These are crunchy, then turn chewy in your mouth.
