My husband LOVES candy but we try not to keep it around so he used this recipe and made his own Twix bars. This caramel is fantastic! I watched him make it and he is a beginner candy maker but seemed to have no problem with this recipe. My only small issue is I thought it was too sweet (it hurt our teeth a little haha) so next time we will reduce the sugar slightly. Hopefully that will not compromise this great recipe. Thank you!
