Would this be a substitute for corn syrup?

The orange marmalade that I have has real corn syrup in it.  Do you think it would work if I substituted it for the corn syrup in this recipe?  Maybe I should add 3 tbsp marmalade??? 

My recipe:  Almond Crunch Candy

3/4 cup sliced almonds
3/4 cup sweetened coconut
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3 tbsp water
1 tbsp light corn syrup
1/2 tsp salt

Combine almonds & coconut and spread in bottom of buttered 9x13 pan. 

In a saucepan, melt butter and blend in remaining ingredients.  Cook without stirring until mixture reaches soft crack stage (290F).  Remove and drizzle over almonds & coconut. Cool, break into pieces, store in air-tight container.   Makes 1 lb of candy.

Maybe. If you have agave syrup I'd use that. It's such a teeny amount I don't even think it would be missed much other than a thickening agent.

Orange Marmalade sounds like it would go well. But i am by no means a candy maker so i dont know how that will effect it!

 Thanks.  I agree ... 1 tbsp is a small amount.

 The orange dipping sauce is marmalade, soy sauce, and ? (something else, I know it's three ingredients).

Love love shredded coconut. I could use it with anything and everything. Last night I made honey mustard coconut chicken strips. My very very picky 4yr old approved of them. Posted the Recipe in the Recipe forum.

 Corn syrup is used in making candy to help the sugar melt smoothly and keep it from becoming grainy or gritty. If there's corn syrup in the orange marmalade it might be ok, but I'm not sure that would work.

 Outback dipping sauce is orange marmalade and Cajun mustard-a coarse grainy mustard. Really good.
