I've trimmed down this recipe over the years, and now my family likes it better than ever. They don't even miss all of the sugar that I used to add. Try it with peanut butter or butterscotch chips.

"The only thing I can think is that maybe you didn't boil it long enough.  Be sure to start your timer after it comes to a good rolling boil, not when it first starts to bubble."
