DIRECTIONS

  • In a heavy saucepan, mix sugar and cocoa until blended.
  • Add milk and stir until blended.
  • Add heat and slowly bring mixture to a boil. Allow mixture to boil up and dissolve sugar crystals on the sides of the pan.
  • Boil until candy reaches the soft ball stage (230-240 degrees), stirring constantly.
  • To test for "soft ball stage" drop a little of the candy mixture in clean, ice cold water. If you can roll it around with your finger and it holds together, it's ready.
  • Remove from heat, and stir in bourbon.
  • "Beat" mixture with a spoon, stirring briskly until the candy starts to crust around the sides of the saucepan and the mixture thickens considerably.
  • Pour into a buttered 9x13 glass dish. Allow to cool slightly and cut into squares.
  • Press a whole pecan into the top of each square.
  • Enjoy!
