      I am not comfortable giving any stars because my inexperience in candy-making is most likely the culprit. When my sugar became the color of bittersweet chocolate I suspected I had missed the boat; I think I produced Burnt Sugar Pecan Brittle. I'll try tasting it once it cools. I rarely make desserts, and this might be my second attempt at candy. I guess I need a "never-fail" recipe to match my prowess. DH loves pecans and pecan pie, so he'll have to console himself by eating the left over pecan halves. Attempted for Please Review My Recipe. Again, I am sure that I was the problem, sorry RP.

      Though I might cut back on the sugar next time, this was a fantastic snack for us tonight. Loved the pecan pie flavor, (plenty of it). Very easy to make too. Made this for PRMR Tag.
