It is with my apologies that I cannot give this recipe a higher rating,but I did not have much luck with this one.I followed the recipe exactly and even used a candy thermometer.I was able to reach the 230 degrees mark within a reasonable amount of time;however, it was during the long wait for the last 8 degrees that I think the damage was done and the mixture burned even though I was stirring it continuously.The mixture took on a light brown colour during this time and after having let it sit the required 10 minutes,I added the vanilla chips...it started to harden right away and I had to "knead" in the pecans and coconut.While it tastes okay the apppearance is a sort of mottled brown colour and the texture seems rather grainy.I may try this recipe again and allow it to cook until the 230 degrees mark.Sorry,Kitten!
