Cooking Know-How

If you don't have a candy thermometer, remove a small amount of the hot sugar mixture and add to cold water. If the syrup forms a soft ball, then the syrup is at the right temperature.

    I made this for my coworkers but it did not get to leave the house. I had to make a double batch the next day. It is wonderful. Not an easy recipe for beginners but the second time was a breeze. Will be making it again and again

    I had problems with this recipe. when I mixed in the coconut, I let it sit there. There didn't seem to be anything there to boil, it was sort of lumpy, the coconut soaked up all the moisture. While it sat there, it started to smell burnt and it was getting really brown. Put in fridge so chocolate wouldn't melt. Candy turned out hard after sat out awhile and I couldn't chew or bite it. What did I do wrong? Any suggestions? Would like to try again maybe.
