What colour am I looking for them to change to?

They should go a mushy white colour and you then know that they will have reached the right stage of sweetness. They'll also be completely soft - almost melted. Use those two indicators rather than clock watching.

Donald,

exactly as Secret Santa says.

i don't look for colour - only going on almost melted. for me it's best to start with 2 hrs. over time i've managed to get it down to 90 mins. am currently experimenting on "basic base" at 5 hrs. so as said time is not the primary focus. Chewytikka has a very good video to dig out called 3 hr base - well worth a watch.

I'd say yes the first is the mix powder,
The second is the spices that go in the base, which includes the mix powder.
