I make microwave brittle on a regular basis and it turns out beautifully. I tried this recipe 4 times and it never hardens. Always gooey. Any suggestions?

Ok, This is AWESOME!! I just made this and OMG!! Fabulous…..The sweet and heat together is perfect….the only thing I did different was cook mine on the stovetop instead of the microwave. Give this a try you will love it!!

The brittle itself is decent, but there is no heat at all.
