MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 27, 2013

This only made syrup. My Christmas gift to my nephew and niece is still sitting in the freezer, not set up. The candy for Christmas dinner, likewise ruined. I even had 12 oz of evaporated milk not 14 and used 1 1/2 cups of the chips each, still syrup only. Disgusted!!

maybe use 2 tsp mint instead of 3? Depends on how much you love mint.

Finished product does NOT look like the picture-and 8-inch pan is too big, makes a thin candy.

I have been making this recipe for a long time for Christmas and it always turns out excellent. Someone asked about cutting it. I found a suggestion on google to use a pizza cutter and I did that this morning and it worked perfect! These are so easy to make, look great and tastes wonderful!
