I'm nuts too...

I'm nuts too...

It was very sticky, so I didn't bother rolling it out, but most importantly, the taste was just not right, the kids didn't even like it, even after I tried to redeem it by topping it with chocolate. I'll tell ya, I was less than thrilled watching this go down the garbage disposal...I screwed up & doubled the recipe before trying it. Sorry Julie, thanks anyway.

This made me mad that I actually tried it because I didn't look to see that it has only gotten one star. The "dough" does not set up. It would have made a lovely cake icing, but I kept adding a little more sugar to see if it would hold up like a dough and it would not. Really bummed me out. Julie, do you have the butter ratio wrong or something? Sorry, thumbs down!

Correct Measurements 1/3C light corn syrup 1/3C butter everything eles in receipe is correct. hint: confection sugar should have slight mound when measurring out (not an exact measurment).
