The first couple of times I made your Pine Bark it came out awesome! However the last two times the Carmel is chewy and never gets like toffee. I follow the recipe to the exact measurement and timing. could I be doing wrong? Thank you in advance. Kathy

I've made these with my 8th grade class at school, that's how easy they are! I love that this recipe is different than a dough/baked cookie. It reminds me of a Heath bar.
