I have a question about the Cast Iron Pan Candy…and I hope someone has made it and can help me out. Well I tried it this morning and it was a mess! I burned it ……well I tried again and I have never made candy befor so I think I under cooked it for fear of it burning again since that is  a lot of butter to toss in the trash….well it came out very soft….not moldable should it harden up some if made right? I do not have a candy thermometer so I will the next time go the full 15 mins and see if that makes a differenc. Any suggestions as to what I should have done? Does it matter if one uses dark brown sugar vs light brown sugar?

Sara, I moved your post over to the recipe where the pan candy is.  There is 3 pages of discussion!!!!

Thanks, Cindy!  I was getting ready to do that, but got interrupted by some hungry dogs!
