I think this recipe calls for TOO MUCH BAKING SODA! I'd decrease it to 1 TBSP. like all the other recipes for sponge candy I found. I think 1.5 TBSP. makes it taste "off". Also, I used a 9x13x2" Pyrex dish and the foam was about 4" high! The air bubbles were so large that it totally crumbled when I cut into it. There was no way this would ever be able to be dipped in chocolate. Be sure to watch the candy thermometer very carefully, as it seems to rapidly increase in temperature at 300. Mine got the tiniest bit too done and tasted burned; so, on top of the soda taste, was just awful. Not sure what to do with this mess. But, do try reducing the baking soda if you try making this recipe!
