re:peppermint cansy canesDecember 28, 2010 By LovelyLoriC
I made these twice so far, and they dont get hard unless I put them in the freezer, but when I take them out they soften up again. hard to eat when they are falling apart. what am I doing wrong? I'm following the recipe :(

These makes a great little gift.December 20, 2009 By mshughes1
This recipe turned out very well and was a fun project. My canes were very homemade looking, ie not all perfect and the red did not wrap perfectly around the white, (that was up to my lack of dexterity) but that made them seem all the more elegant. I think i will double the recipe because a lot is lost with sticking to the pans, gloves, walls etc.. These makes a great little gift. The candy tasted lovely.

cany cane meltdownDecember 08, 2008 By neeblic
For a beginning candymaker, I found this recipe almost too basic, lacking detail such as how to seperate the candy while it is hot, to put it in a bowl or on a baking sheet, what to do when part two got hard while I was working with part one. The great part about sugar is you can resoften and reboil it. Why don't you mention any of these suggestions? It took me 4 tries to learn everything the hard way. In the end though it was much more fun than going to the store and opening a wrapper.
