  • 1 ½ cups toasted pecans
  • 1 ½ cups white sugar
  • cup butter
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside.

  2. In big saucepan, combine the pecans, sugar, butter, brown sugar, milk and vanilla, all over a medium heat. Heat that stuff to between 234 and 240 F. It's ready if you can drop a small amount of syrup into some cold water and it forms a soft ball that flattens when you take it out.

  3. Drop spoonfuls of the mix onto the prepped baking sheet and let them cool and flatten completely.
