I am giving this four stars because, as other reviewers mentioined, the directions lack a lot of details. I have a digital thermometer and got the sugar and corn syrup up to 234 degrees as other reviewers recommended. Then I added about a cup and a half of fat free half and half and a half cup of skim milk (because I didn't have enough half and half). I returned to a boil and boiled for about 15 minutes or until the mixture returned to 234 degrees (per other reviews). It did take on a caramel color, although it was more opaque than I thought it would be. We waited until it got to around 200 degrees and then dipped 8 large apples in it. The caramel eventually fell off the first apple, so I think next time I'd let it cool even a little less than 200 degrees. My husband did say it tasted just like Werther's candy and the apples were a hit. They did stick to the wax paper that I put them on and I will try parchement next time instead.
