“So easy, yet so moreish! To check for 'hard ball stage' - when the mixture becomes thick and caramel coloured, drop a small amount into a bowl of iced water. It should form a fairly firm ball quite quickly. If not, cook for 2 minutes more and try again. **Please be careful when working with hot sugar!**”
