Ingredients

  • 2

    teaspoons plus 1 cup butter, divided

  • 1-1/4

    cups sugar

  • 1-1/4

    cups packed brown sugar

  • 1

    cup dark corn syrup

  • 2

    cups heavy whipping cream, divided

  • 2

    pounds chopped pecans

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Line a 13-in. x 9-in. pan with foil; grease the foil with 2 teaspoons butter and set aside. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the sugars, corn syrup, 1 cup cream and the remaining butter. Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil. Slowly stir in the remaining cream. Cook, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 245° (firm-ball stage). Remove from the heat; stir in pecans and vanilla. Pour into prepared pan (do not scrape saucepan). Let stand until firm. Using foil, lift candy out of pan. Discard foil; cut candy into 1-in. squares. Wrap individually in waxed paper; twist ends.
