Fun and simple recipe! As long as you cook it long enough it's really not too much trouble to twist them. (Though yes it is very hot!) I just used a twisting while pulling method and cut them in short strips.
I also found that this is only difficult and messy when you don't cook them for long enough. They become sticky and don't harden fast making them impossible to twist and set aside (they'll even stick to the plate!) A good way to also tell when its time to pour is when it starts smelling a little burnt.
I tired 2 variations of this. This first I added vanilla extract and it came out, I think, the same way it would have come out without it. A sort of butterscotch taste~
The second I added some lemon juice and red food coloring and they came out beautiful! I would only recommend it though if you like a burnt/bitter taste to your candy. Otherwise the taste would have been perfect. Sweet with a little tartness.
Thanks for this recipe!
