I won’t say this was a disaster nor will I say that it was a pure success. It was some where in the middle. I followed the directions as close as one can. Everything was going great until the last step on the stove top. Never did reach 245. The smell of burning sugar told me to abort the mission and hope for the best. The result.Tasty sweet creamy candies with small black bits of burnt sugar. They are good enough for home consumption, no chance would I give these as a gift. I might be inclined to do it again but honestly I am sure if I am cut out for the candy making business.
Hope others had better luck.
