Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients except pecans in a large stock pot and cook over medium heat, stirring only until the butter is melted and sugar is dissolved.
  2. Meanwhile, line 2 baking sheets with wax paper and prepare the pecans. (You will also need a large wooden spoon and a smaller metal spoon.).
  3. Heat mixture until soft ball stage (238), and remove from heat.
  4. Immediately stir in pecans and continue stirring until mixture takes on a creamy consistency. (When it's time to stop stirring, the mixture will begin to make a very slight scraping sound when you stir).
  5. Work quickly to spoon candy out on lined baking sheets, being careful not to burn yourself. Time is very limited here, as candy sets up quickly.
  6. Allow candy to cool, then store in airtight containers.
