    Christy- they are quite crispy- it all depends on how long you cook it for and what type of sugar you use. The longer you cook sugars, the crunchier your product is. The shorter the cooking time, the more sticky.. just like if you were making candy with a candy thermometer. Different sugars turn into that hard crack stage at different times.. 20 minutes was long enough to get ours to be crunchy, not sticky. Arsenic in organic rice syrup??? Question for those who have made these; the pictures makes them look sticky. Following this recipe, do the bars become a crumble or sticky bar?
