This turned out great for me despite all of the negative reviews. I didnt have a problem at all. I even added a scoop of homemade orange marmalade into the sugar mix just for extra color and flavor. And as for the mix, I put in slivered almonds, dried cranberries, dried papaya, dried pineapple, and chocolate chips. What a super sweet treat this is!!
I am a pretty good cook and this was kind of a disaster. I stood over it and brushed down any sugar crystals that formed but still did not have any luck. It never carmelized and now I am worried that i won't be able to remove it from the pan I poured it into. Don't know what I did wrong.
This was a little work to make this however it turned out fine for me, I plan on making this again for the holidays, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)
I'm not rating this because I made a mess of it! I cooked the sugar/water mix but no caramel color, so kept cookiing till all the water was cooked out. Added more water but still no caramel color. I ended up stirring, to make sure it wasn't burning at the bottom. I finally added water to make a syrup and poured it over, but it turned to sugar on top. I used a nonstick pan and I'm wondering if maybe I should have used stainless steel. Anyway, I'm sure this is delicious if done right. I'm sorry, I feel like I did something wrong, but not sure what! Thanks cookiedog, I hope someone tries this!
