You know what is like, if you believe Jays old slogan, "Bet you can't eat just one". Definitely 5 star rating. Definitely use large pot. Regular sauce pan will NOT be enough as it does boil up especially at the beginning. 1st time I made these, my candy thermometer measured 250, but caramels were harder than what I expected. My thermometer may be the problem. 2nd. time, I used the cold water method. When a small amount was placed in cold water, I felt the consistency I wanted. I strongly suggest you use both, and when temp rises you can begin to drop into the cold water. I also wrapped in plastic wrap. Using the kitchen table I could wrap about 20 at a time. Just space them far enough apart and spreading them out along the long end of the wrap. I did this on both sides and rolled them toward each other. Then cut with scissors to slice the wrap in half length wise, then for each individual drop. Wrapping does take the most time. 1st. time I had a difficult slicing as it was just too hard. 2nd time much easier. Next time I will cut while still somewhat warm. Please try these. You won't be sorry. I'm sure if you have family members, it won't last long. Hope this all is a great help to you.
