This recipe is lovely, however, you will need a thermometer to keep an eye on the temperature. To avoid disappointment heat your sugar to about 300 f then take it off the heat before adding everything else. Do it too early your caramel will be soft, too long and it will burn. Even chefs recommend this. Also try salted cashews, my family love this and I get asked to make it every Christmas
