"This recipe has been around longer than I have. It is one of those recipes that I never mess up. I make this for school lunches and press into muffin tins for perfect lunch-size pieces. It never lasts long in our house."

If you find it hardens too much reduce the time you boil the syrup. The syrup acts like candy syrup. The longer it boils the hotter it gets and the harder it is when it cools down.

sooo good, I didn't find it too chewy or hard as another reviewer commented but that can also depend on how long you cook your mixture...as soon as it starts to bubble, you are good to go.

It was good, but I cooked it less than recommended so it wasn't rock-hard. A good treat to whip up for a play date!

Perfect recipe to take to anywhere

Very yummy and easy for kids to make. Definitely reduce boiling time to 2-3 minutes if you like them chewy, and not too hard. I also added an extra tbsp of cocoa.

This is the classic, in order to keep the wonderful chewy texture after storage you really MUST use real butter and keep the boil time to around a minute. I never have a storage issue since this...

This is a true classic and it is the one I grew up with and loved as a child (and still do). Having read the earlier review that complains about the overnight hardening despite being wrapped I w...

Taste delicious fresh but hardened quite a bit overnight despite being wrapped. Would consider increasing the mix or maybe adding a few marshmallows next time.
