Ingredients

    teaspoons plus ½ cup butter, softened, divided

  • cups confectioners' sugar

  • ½

    cup nonfat dry milk powder

  • ½

    cup sugar

  • ½

    cup light corn syrup

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1

    (14-ounce) package caramels

  • 1

    tablespoon milk or half-and-half cream

  • 2

    cups chopped pecans

Directions

Butter an 8-inch square pan with 2 teaspoons butter; set aside. Combine confectioners sugar and milk powder; set aside. In a heavy saucepan, combine 1/2 cup butter, sugar and corn syrup; cook and stir until sugar is dissolved and mixture comes to a boil. Stir in confectioners' sugar mixture, about a third at a time, until blended. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Continue stirring until the mixture mounds slightly when dropped from a spoon. Spread into prepared pan. Let cool. Cut candy into four strips; cut each strip in half. Shape each into a log; wrap in waxed paper and twist ends. Freeze or refrigerate until firm. Meanwhile, in a microwave, melt caramels with milk, stirring often. Roll logs in caramel mixture, then in pecans. Wrap in waxed paper. Store at room temperature in airtight containers. Cut into slices with a serrated knife. Yield: about 3-1/4 pounds.
