This is like my Grams! I've been trying to replicate hers over the years without success and this one is the closest one I've found. Thanks! I can taste that I scorched it just a tiny bit, so I will have to be careful not to have the burner too high next time, but the consistency of it is sort of sugary, not creamy, and that is exactly the way hers turned out. After you take it off the burner just keep stirring like mad, I even would hold the spoon up and let it flow off the spoon to assist in the cooling. Be careful if you do that. Then the candy sort of starts to get thick and a bit grainy looking, although it doesn't lose it's gloss completely. That's when you want to pour it into the pan, otherwise, if you wait too long, you will end up spreading it roughly in the pan and it's harder to work with. I chose not to use nuts, I don't like walnuts much, if I choose nuts next time, I may do it with some roughly chopped toasted pecans.
