    What can I use in place of light corn syrup? Helen Christian

  2. I found a website that gives a very thorough list on ingredient substitution -

    Here is what they say you can substitute in place of 1 cup light corn syrup:
    -1 cup dark corn syrup
    -1 cup treacle
    -1 cup liquid glucose
    -1 cup honey
    -1 cup granulated white sugar (increase the liquid in the recipe by 1/4 cup)
