This is a very easy and delicious recipe. However, the directions need to be more clear regarding the melting of the sugar. As soon as a few golden spots appear, remove the sugar from the heat. Stir to get a uniform color. If you wait until all of the sugar is golden brown, it will have reached the hard candy stage. I learned this after two failed batches...Now that I have the secret, this will be a staple dessert. I even bought an apple peeler to make this easier!
