Hi, thanks for the recipes. The Patience Candy sounds very close, except you didn't have to worry about firmness or temp. It was made just like fudge without the chocolate. It didn't have corn syrup. This sounds the closest to that recipe, though. I am going to try it! Thanks so much for your reply. I just discoved this site a couple of days ago. It's great!
