- 1/2 cup of salted butter (1 stick)
- 1 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup half and half
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cup toasted pecans
- parchment paper
How to make:
In a large ungreased skillet, heat pecans until toasted (they’ll let off a delicious smell). Remove from heat.
In a large pot, stir and heat butter, sugar, half and half, and vanilla until a candy thermometer reads 240 degrees.
Remove from heat and let the liquid sit for five minutes. Add pecans, stir to make sure all pecans are coated.
Spoon out the pecan mixture onto parchment paper.
Let cool and serve.
