oh my goodness, the candy came out awesome! We didn't have a thermometer, so we did the water test. It came out melt-in-your-mouth perfect! thanks so much for the recipe!

I was impressed with how little time it took to make this candy, and it's really good--especially to peanut butter-lovers!

Very smooth- taste much like a non-crunchy Butterfinger Bar. Might be great with an added chocolate layer.
