Yield:
1 1/2 dozen
Level:
Easy

Ingredients

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (packed) light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups pecan pieces

Directions

In a heavy saucepan, over medium heat, combine the sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, butter, salt and condensed milk. With a wooden spoon, stir until the sugar dissolves. Continue to cook, stirring, until smooth and light brown, about 8 minutes. Add the vanilla and pecans and continue to cook, stirring, until the mixture reaches 234 to 240 degrees F. on a candy thermometer or the soft ball stage, that is, when a bit dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens. Remove from the heat and drop by the spoonful onto waxed paper. Let cool. Remove from the paper with a thin knife.
