Do NOT boil this for 2-4 minutes. The meaning I got out of this recipe is that you should stir the mixture until it comes to a boil, which should take 2-4 minutes. NOT, stir this recipe until it boils, and then boil for 2-4 minutes.
As with Scotcharoos, I stir the mixture until it comes to a good boil, then pull it off the heat. I don't even boil it for a minute.
I was excited to make these because I thought they would make a good, special Halloween recipe. Everything went well EXCEPT when the recipe said to boil the sugar mixture for 2-4 minutes, and I boiled it for four minutes, and then added the vanilla and peanut butter quickly but it became as hard as a rock. I couldn't incorporate the peanuts, rice krispies and candy corn. I should have known better having made scotcheroos all of my life, which has basically the same directions. I would definitely boil the mixture only two minutes (maybe only one minute).
