    Stir together and bring to a boil over medium high heat. You must stir this constantly so it doesn't burn. Bring to 290* on a candy thermomoter. (It will change colors and thicken)
  • 3
    Remove from heat and add baking soda. Stirring it in quickly, and then pour it onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. DO NOT TIP OR DROP OR SHAKE THE COOKIE SHEET!
