Ingredients

  • 1

    pound pecan halves, toasted

  • 1

    can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk

  • 3/4

    cup light corn syrup

  • 1/2

    cup sugar

    cup packed brown sugar

    cup butter, cubed

  • 1-1/2

    teaspoons vanilla extract

    pound milk chocolate candy coating, chopped

Directions

1. On waxed paper-lined baking sheets, arrange pecans in small clusters of four to five pecans each. 2. For caramel, in a small saucepan, combine the milk, corn syrup and sugars. Cook and stir over medium heat until a candy thermometer reads 238° (soft-ball stage). Remove from the heat. Stir in butter and vanilla. Working quickly, spoon caramel onto pecan clusters. Let stand until set. 3. In a microwave, melt candy coating; stir until smooth. Spoon over caramel. Chill for 10 minutes or until set. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 4 dozen.
