Bring to a rolling boil until crack stage is reached. 300 degrees. ( I always let mine go 10 degrees higher it helps the candy have a crisp snap) if you don’t have a candy thermometer use a cup or small glass filled halfway with water. Once candy cooks for approx. 10 min use a spoon. Dip into the mixture and let some drop into the water. If the candy hardens immediately it is at crack stage.
