One of my favorite Christmas Candy to make...it takes patience to get to 300 degree temp but worth the wait!
This was super yummy. I couldn't stop eating it. I did have a hard time getting it to 305 degrees without burning it. The first batch I burned. I was careful the 2nd time and kept the heat much lower, but it still started to burn at the end. Very yummy though. Everyone loved it.
Took this into work, and by noon it was all gone! Easy to make too.
