    At what stage is the caster sugar added ? Have only given two star as I haven't baked this yet and I can't post until I give a star  -  18 Oct 2015


    sorry about missing the sugar yes it goes into the pot for the boiling stage.  -  18 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Very nice recipe and similar to one i had years back, so pleased to have found it. I also added a cup of raw peanuts to the mixture at the boiling stage. Super delish! Just note that in the recipe it does not state when to add the sugar. I added it to the boiling stage.  -  20 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
