    CIndytc's Note:

    This is a recipe I have perfected over the years...and it is so darn easy and fast compared to the old "boil to hard ball stage recipes"...I just made 3 different kinds of flavors and it takes about 10 minutes per flavor....follow the directions exactly...and be careful and use oven mits.. UPDATE: Microwaves vary so be sure to get a good boil especially the first time. In my new microwave it takes 4 minutes each step in microwave. Also the flavoring you should use the whole 1 dram.

      The outcome of this recipe was great, but like already stated use bowls you don't care about. I used a very thick, and unfortunately vintage, bowl. After the third round in the microwave it cracked and eventually shattered after getting the candy in the pan, in addition to my melted spoon I used to mix it...

      Not user friendly. My dish and spoon was ruined! Make sure you use junk silverware and bowls ect. The bowl got super hot in my microwave (which is a brand new model)! It got so hot that the bowl melted the platic wrap onto the bowl. It is convienient if your looking for a quick fix, otherwise I would stick to the original way.
