Copykat Recipe
1 C. Sugar
1/2 C. Light Corn Syrup
1/2 C. Water
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 Tbs. Butter
1 1/2 C. Pecan Pieces
1 tsp. Baking Soda
2 tsp. Butter Flavoring
Candy thermometer
Stir together sugar, corn syrup, water, butter, salt, and butter flavor. Bring to simmer on medium heat and place lid on pot for one minute then remove lid. This will steam all sugar crystals on side of pot and they will slide down into mixture. Place a candy thermometer in pan and continue to cook on medium heat stirring frequently until candy reaches soft crack stage. Add nuts and mix through, continue to cook until mixture reaches hard crack stage. Remove from heat and add baking soda. Mixture will foam, make sure you blend baking soda into candy completely. Pour on to a non stick cookie sheet or lightly buttered baking sheet. Spread to 1/4″ thick or less while mixture is still hot, candy will start to harden quickly. When set and cool brake into pieces and store in air tight container.
