I'm sorry it turned out wrong for you! Did you use butter or margarine?Margarine will separate almost every time.It is best to always use real butter in candy recipes.
This is a great recipe. It was easy to make and taste good too. I followed the recipe completely, but was a little apprehensive about pouring onto ungreased pan, thinking it might stick. It didn't.
I don't know what went wrong. I followed the instructions exactly. When the temperature reached 280 degrees I added the chopped nuts and continued to cook to 300 degrees. The mixture separated and was ruined. I had alot of oil. Don't know if it was from the almonds or the separation. Sure sounds good, wish I knew what I did wrong!
