This is posted per a request. The recipe is from The World Of Jewish Desserts cookbook. This is a traditional Passover and Purim candy. The candy should be chewy since it is cooked to less than 300F, the temperature at which syrup becomes brittle. Also, the candy is sticky since honey absorbs moisture from the air. Therefore, do not make this on a very humid day (unless you have on the air conditioner). The base recipe indicates to cook until soft-crack stage (280F). Cook times do not include cool times.
