This is NOT what should happen! I failed to stir together the sugar, corn syrup, and salt . And I probably microwaved the ingredients too long (KNOW the wattage of your microwave; a few extra seconds can burn the sugar!)

This recipe is from "Southern Living Ultimate Christmas Cookbook," sold at Dillards (proceeds go to Ronald McDonald House). This is a beautiful book, and well worth the $10 that went to a very worthy cause.
