      This was a nice simple recipe utilising stuff I already had in the cupboard. I got best results cutting the caramel after 1.5 hours and leaving them in the fridge overnight. Will make some more and dip them in chocolate and give them out as gifts for Christmas. Very inexpensive to make.

      made it exactly like the recipe, except (always the except:) I used ordinary sugar. they taste wonderfull, just like fantails :) I suggest you watch them in the fridge, becasue they were sticky after 30 mins, and hard to cut. I wanted to dip them in chocolate, and I found that they were harder after the 3o mins. depending on what you want to do, just watch them, and pick your time!!!at about the 40 min mark you can cut and roll them. I dipped them in chocolate and they turned out wonderfull thanks Kim
