Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 cups whole milk
  • 2-1/2 cups light brown sugar
  • 2-1/2 cups sugar
  • 2-1/2 cups pecans, lightly chopped
  • ½ stick real butter
  • Two teaspoons vanilla extract OR 2 teaspoons maple extract (maple extract is excellent)
  • pinch salt

Directions

  • Warm milk in a cast-iron dutch oven or a large pot.
  • Add sugar, brown sugar, and a pinch of salt.
  • YOU NEED A CANY THERMOMETER THAT IS ACCURATE
  • Cook until it reaches 240 degrees soft-ball stage. A good way to text “soft-ball” stage without a thermometer is to drop a small amount, a couple of drops of the candy, into cold water it will form a soft ball.
  • Stir almost constantly to prevent sticking and burning. If the candy burns, you have to start over. If you are using a thermometer attached to the side of the pot, make sure that it does not sit on the bottom of the pot. You will not get a correct reading.
  • Once the candy reaches 240 degrees, remove from the heat.
  • Next, add the butter, extract, and pecans.
  • Allow the candy to sit for 10 minutes before stirring these ingredients in.
  • Next, stir the candy about 100 strokes to incorporate the pecans.
  • Spoon the candy about 1 to 2 TB size onto a sheet of wax paper or parchment paper.
  • Spoon quickly before the candy starts to harden.
  • Allow them to cool and dry.
  • Then, carefully turn them over to dry the other side.
  • Store them in an air tight container or wrap each one in plastic wrap. You can layer them in a plastic container with parchment paper or wax paper between them and freeze them.
  • They will last for months in the freezer.
