This is a recipe I have perfected over the years...and it is so darn easy and fast compared to the old "boil to hard ball stage recipes"...I just made 3 different kinds of flavors and it takes about 10 minutes per flavor....follow the directions exactly...and be careful and use oven mits.. UPDATE: Microwaves vary so be sure to get a good boil especially the first time. In my new microwave it takes 4 minutes each step in microwave. Also the flavoring you should use the whole 1 dram.
