Ingredients

  • 3

    cups sugar

  • 3/4

    cup water

  • 3/4

    cup white Karo syrup

  • 1

    ⁄8 teaspoon salt

  • 2

    large egg whites, at room temperature

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla

  • 1

    cup pecans, broken

Directions

Combine sugar, water and syrup, and cook over high heat. Do not stir. When the syrup reaches 200°F, place egg whites and salt in a large mixing bowl and begin to beat. Egg whites should hold soft peaks by the time the syrup reaches 238°F. Slowly pour 1⁄ 3 of syrup into the egg whites and continue beating rapidly. Return remaining syrup to high heat and cook until it reaches 265°F. Pour remainder of syrup slowly into egg white mixture and continue beating. Add vanilla. Beat until candy holds stiff peaks and begins to lose sheen. Quickly add nuts and mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper. When cool, store in airtight container.
