Ingredients

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups evaporated milk, separated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups pecan halves
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted

Method

Step 1

Combine the sugars, syrup, butter and 1 cup of the evaporated milk, and bring to a boil. Add the other cup of evaporated milk slowly, stirring constantly, and cook until it reaches 255 degrees on a candy thermometer. Add the vanilla and pecans and mix well. Pour into a 9 by 11-inch greased pan and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature, cut into squares then dip in chocolate. If you'd like to make a turtle, spoon dollops of the caramel pecan mixture onto a greased sheet pan, with 5 pecans in each mound (4 legs and head). Refrigerate to set, then dip in chocolate.;
