I made these when I was young and I remember that somtimes they didn't set up,it didnt matter back then, brother and i would just use a spoon and eat it all right them.
No I didn't use a thermometer. right now they are really soft and sticky,hard to get off the wax paper, just thought I might be able to put them back in the pan and try to bring them to a boil again. DH is still eating them,but I cant put them in a container
