Ingredients

  • 1 1/2

    c sugar

  • 1 1/2

    c packed light brown sugar

  • 1/8

    tsp salt

  • 3

    Tbsp dark corn syrup

  • 1

    c evaporated milk

  • 2

    Tbsp butter

  • 1

    tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 1 1/2

    c pecan halves

Directions

1 Butter the sides of a heavy 2-quart saucepan 2 Put the sugars, salt, corn syrup, milk, and butter in saucepan. Over medium heat, stir mixture constantly with a wooden spoon until sugars have dissolved and mixture comes to a boil. 3 Continue to cook to a soft ball stage, approximately 236 degrees F on a candy thermometer. (If you do a cold water test, drizzle a drop of candy into a glass of cold water, the ball of candy will flatten between your fingers when you take it out of the water.) 4 Remove from heat and allow it to cool for 8 minutes. 5 Add the vanilla and nuts, and beat with a spoon by hand for approximately 2 minutes or until candy is slightly thick and begins to lose its gloss. 6 Quickly drop heaping tablespoons onto waxed paper. If the candy becomes stiff, add a few drops of hot water.
