    Lift the pan over the head source (4 to 6 inches) and continue to brown the sugar until it becomes a dark golden brown.

Looks nice but I am going to try it with'light' ingredients (e.g. light consensed milk, light cream cheese) - easier on the calories. I like unconmplicated all-in-one mixes like this which make for more stress free baking.
