We loved the flavor of this candy, but I think maybe this recipe isn't quite as clear as it could be. Stovetop candy recipes are so much about feel and experience that they can be hard to write down! This only partially set up for us, and the texture was a little grainy. I think we needed to let the sugar melt more (it does take a long, long time, so be prepared), and I also think we should have made sure the cream was at least at a simmer before we added the caramel (which promptly congealed into a big gooey lump instead of combining). I would also advise waiting for 30 minutes before you start beating; ours was still pretty liquid at 20. There's another recipe on this site called Aunt Bill's Brown Candy that I think I'll use next time - same basic ingredients, but more specific directions about some of the procedures involved. Thanks anyway though!
