REVIEW: recipe rating

This was very simple to make, even for me - a non-candy making expert! Just a few notes: it will take about 25 minutes of boiling to get to hard-crack stage (300F). Buttering the foil instead of using the powdered sugar I think would be preferable. It's hard to get the powdered sugar evenly on the foil and there were places it stuck a little. Butter the foil, then when you remove it you can sprinkle the candy with powdered sugar (which was what a similar recipe stated to do). Although I think I prefer the more clear look of the candy without the powdered sugar. The flavor and everything else turned out very good! It was a fun recipe to try!

Love this candy! I'm going to change out the cinnamon for mint for the holidays. Maybe do red and green.
