  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 tsp soda
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup white corn syrup
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cup pecans

Mix sugar, soda, milk and corn syrup. Pour into 2 quart boiler and let reach a soft ball or 238°. Add butter and vanilla; beat until thick enough to drop from a teaspoon. Add pecans and drop on waxed paper.

If mixture hardens before it can be dropped, heat over fire for just a few minutes, then drop on waxed paper.
