The only reason I gave this two stars is because the family was not fond of the flavor. You are right in saying there is a secret to this, just before taking it off (I only let the thermometer get to 237) it started smelling the entire house of burnt sugar and I was afraid that the 4 cups of sugar and canned milk was destined for â€¦sink drain and all was lost. Nevertheless, I decided to finish the recipe as stated to see what would happen. Much to my surprise the candy did not taste burnt! However, I was disappointed that it crumbles with cutting.

I live in Ontario, and work for the federal government in Quebec. I grew up in Germany, on the French border. I would have loved to become a gourmet chef, but somehow I ended up a social policy/program database manager (which is my trumped up version of it). I wish I had more time to cook... 2 kids. My focus now is making my life easier by doing my own do-ahead and freezer foods.
