Pretty good. I halved the recipe and used it for fillings in caramels. Next time I will probably double the vanilla. Note, the "25oz" of gelatin should read "0.25oz". 25oz of gelatin would be insane...
Sounds like it will be great! Just one question...when do you add the dissolved gelatin? I would love to make this, but would rather wait until there is a more complete set of directions.
