delicious! (and easy.) i had never made candy before, and this came out WAY better than i expected. i used all the peanuts, as per the recipe, but i did add a bit of vanilla, as suggested in one of the reviews. this panned out really well for me. so, i made two double batches. the first batch was without the use of a candy thermometer. i tried the cold water test, but i think it will form brittle threads LONG before it reaches 300, so i don't think this is trustworthy. i just trusted my gut, and when the color turned caramel and the consistency thickened up, i figured it was done. it turned out GREAT. my boyfriend came home w a candy thermometer in time for the second batch. i figured i'd be more precise, so i made that batch according to the reading on the candy thermometer. guess what? the first batch actually tasted better! :)
