Recipe Feedback: “I made these yesterday using part light brown sugar and subing 2% milk for the evaporated milk. I must say that they turned out awesome! Because there’s only my husband and me in the household, I froze most of them and plan to bring them out next time the grandkids come to visit.” -Jackie

  1. Light or dark corn syrup? Also, sweetened or unsweetened condensed milk? Thanks!

    • The Southern Lady says:

      We use light but you could probably use whichever you like. This recipe doesn’t call for condensed milk. It calls for evaporated milk.

  2. Sonja Schlandt says:

    The candy is delcious and setup well. However, it’s white. There’s no light caramel color to it. Could I use some brown sugar in place of all the white?

    • The Southern Lady says:

      I have not tried it with brown sugar, Sonja, but think it should work for you ok. I can’t imagine why yours is white as mine always comes out the color in the photos.

  3. Carolyn key says:

    Follow directions exactly and 4 hours later, Candy is still sticky. Any suggestions?

    • The Southern Lady says:

      Sounds like you may not have brought it to a hard enough boil but you might try putting in fridge or letting it set longer. Maybe it will eventually harden.

  4. Salted or unsalted butter?

  5. Frannie Landry says:

    Can this be made with Splenda?
