Posted for a request, I have not made this candy myself.

Top Review by Sterling 7

Tasty, but extremely tough/chewy after final chilling to the point of being difficult to cut with a knife. Perhaps only 7 envelopes of gelatin would be better? I used Knox brand gelatin; maybe the original recipe maker used a different brand with smaller envelopes?
