    After wasting four cups of sugar, two cups of water and tweo cups of pecans I gave up. I tried this twice and never got the amber colored mixture, only the sugared mess.

    I followed jarront's clarified directions, and was very happy with the results. It took longer than I thought for the sugar mixture to turn to amber - probably 25 - 27 minutes (I did double the recipe, though. I was beginning to worry. But I set the timer for 20 minutes and did not look away until I got the amber color. The only change I would make next time is to add slightly more nuts than the recipe calls for. Mine ended up a little more like brittle, but they are very good and they look beautiful. Can't wait to make another batch for gift-giving!

    After two failed attempts. I figured out how to pull this off perfectly just like that darn picture in the people magazine where I got this recipe. Here's what they failed to mention in the directions. You must first dissolve the sugar completley on low heat with a constant stir. To check if dissolved use thumb and index finger to dip in mixture, if it feels smooth not gritty than its ready. Turn up the heat to med hi and no more stirring at this point just let it boil until it the amber color sets in. Then follow the original directions.

    Well, it was about 20 min, and I turned away for, what, 30 seconds, and the whole thing turned into solid white sugar. How can you tell when enough is enough??? Anyway, my guests will eat it but I'm super shocked and disappointed!

    Same results as previous writers - only I got the glumby, sugar mess after 15 minutes. Disappointment.

    I, too, followed the directions and ended up with sugar again. There was no amber color...I added a little more water and had the same results. I am extremely disappointed as it sounded great.

    I followed the directions exactly and after 22 minutes all the water had boiled away and I was left with granulated sugar and a mess to clean up in my pan. It never turned amber. I am so disappointed. This recipe sounded great. Has anyone else had luck? It must be missing an ingredient.
