I used that goo..believe it or not the goo was good lol I put a glob of goo onto a pretzel adn coated it in chocolate..they weren't bad but I have never remade it lol
Yeah, that is kind of what happened with mine!! I don't have a candy thermometer, figured it was no big deal, I would just do the ball test. lol It ended up gooey and sticky, but harder than a taffy. We couldn't even chew it because it just stuck to our teeth lol. So it was completely my fault that the recipe didn't work, I just haven't been brave enough to try again(with a thermometer of course!)
Thanks for all the suggestions!! I just sent a box of mostly packaged stuff, trail mix, fruit roll ups, pop tarts, ect. But his next one is going to be full of homemade goodies!
