I made this today for my husband's boss.  It turned out perfect, although I didn't bake it in the oven for as long as it called for.  Maybe three minutes.  It was bubbling over and I was afraid it would burn. Everything else I followed exactly as written.  It was so easy! I agree with PP about melting some of the butter first.  I did this and then put the sugar in and didn't stop whisking until about three minutes.

Thanks for the recipe!

I'm furious. I found this at 11:25 p.m. I have no saltines. I can't make noise, as hubster is sleeping in front of a western on TV in the same room. I am desperate to make these right now. Smiley

SkyyAngel, I see you are from Texas...could humidity be part of the issue? I find that if I make caramel-y popcorn-ball type things when the humidity is high, I get soft, gooey gunk. I made some salted caramel shortbread bars this week (it's too humid and hot down here to believe that Christmas loometh) and the doggone caramel crept all over the place like The Blob, part 2. It was ugly and chewy instead of crisp,  but it was still tasty. I don't know if science supports it, but that's my guess.

Off to fume some more. Wonder if those very old pretzels in the back of the cabinet would do? Wonder if I could do the noisy parts (aluminum foil) in the bedroom? ..... Undecided

I just finished this up and it is amazing for something so simple!  Shocked

I did alter the receipe slightly, I used vanilla in the butter sugar mixture because vanilla just makes everything better  Grin and used chopped peanuts on top since the hubby doesn't like any other kind of nuts. Roll Eyes

skyyangel a few tips..use only real butter, none of that spreadable stuff (they put water in it to make it spreadable) <snip>

You may have discovered the culprit. >.< Thanks Country Crock.

I *do* have some last minute shopping to do tomorrow, I might have time to give it one more go before the party tomorrow night....

Thanks for the tips... I'll keep y'all updated. Smiley

Skyyangel..good. I am glad that you know what the problem is..I'd hate to be the only person guzzling down this stuff...regular salted butter is best...helps with the swaltyness
