    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.

  2. 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.

  3. Salted or unsalted butter?

    Can this be made with Splenda?
