  • 2 cups pecan halves
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 tbsp vanilla

In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, syrup, water and pecans. Stir over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture comes to a boil. Continue cooking until and stirring until the soft ball stage. Soft ball stage has a temperature between 234 and 238 degrees. Without a candy thermometer you can judge the stage when the candy mixture dropped in cold water has a soft texture and will stick together in a ball when rolled between your fingers.
