followed the recipe but the toffee would not set
We liked it.. I adopted you for Pick-a-Chef Spring 2007 and this looked like a good Birthday party recipe. The taste is great.. but.. we found that it was so chewy that a tiny piece almost glued your mouth shut, so it was less of a success than I had hoped. I poured mine out really really thinly .. onto a large commerical serving tray (metal) and a cookie sheet with sides and I definiately wouldn't have wanted it have been any thicker. Also, I needed to boil it for more than 10 minutes, stirring constantly before it got anywhere near setting in the water, not a probalem per se but the cooking time given definiately needs adjusting. This makes a LOT, especially given that such small pieces are such a mouthful.. it was popular becuase of the taste but not many parents or kids went back for seconds becuase it was so incredibly chewy to eat. Please see my Rating System: 3 stars for the great taste but a recipe that wasn't a real success over all. It was definiately worth a try, Thanks!
