Reviews forCashew Crickle Candy
"FINAL PRODUCT WAS DELICIOUS...however, this is a very poorly written recipe. I cook sugar regularly but for someone who does not do so, heat settings, time estimates and what to look for while the sugar is cooking would be most helpful. I excpect better from a publication and a website that is so reliable."
"Very very good! I plan to use this recipe a lot for Christmas presents! Thank you!"
