Personal Notes:
I love making this recipe to give as gifts. However, cooking time has been a real problem for me. The original recipe says to cook for 30 minutes, but that proved to be too long every time. Keep a real close eye on this mixture while you are stirring it. Take them out as soon as they start to brown or they will be overcooked.
