Tried the recipe last night and the results are not firm enought to cut. What did I do wrong??? The gooey results should make a good sauce for over ice cream, (it tastes good!), but no way are there any ‘caramels’ to cut and serve!

Are you sure you cooked it the way the directions say. This is my mothers recipe and I have never had a problem. The only thing I can think is that is may have needed to cook longer or that your crock pot wasn’t hot enough??
Sorry it didn’t work out for you.
