I have made this recipe a LOT, long before I found it posted here, and have even made it in the last few years with Whey Low Sugar Substitute (don't try it with other sugar substitutes though, like Splenda or Nutrasweet -- it will NOT work!). There are two keys to it -- don't cook it ANY longer than absolutely necessary, just watch for the color and texture to change and remove it from heat IMMEDIATELY, then stir in the vanilla (not before or it will be bitter)and use a BIG pot or it will boil over and you will have a real mess on your hands. It should be light colored like caramel, not dark brown. And yes it does get hard when it is cold but you can warm it up in the microwave and it will remelt -- just keep an eye on it. Stores well for months in the refrigerator but portion it up in small jars as repeated heating will thicken it. Great stuff! Try it as a glaze for a cake or stir in pecans and use as a sauce for ice cream -- yummy!
