It absolutely kills me to think of someone being disappointed with this recipe, but I know it can be a frustrating candy to pull off. The trick is to get the mixture to the proper consistency. I began making this with my mother-in-law about 25 years ago, and I remember being absolutely amazed at how much powdered sugar she added to make the mixture as firm as possible (we always ended up needing more than the recipe calls for). You have to get it to a point where you pretty much cannot stir it anymore. I always start out using my Kitchen Aid mixer, but eventually get to the point where it is so stiff that I must do the rest by hand. Then it is off to the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. I work in very small batches, only taking a portion out of the fridge at a time to roll into balls. It can be time consuming, but it is so worth it. You cannot believe how impressed everyone is when they taste these.
