Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 TBS butter
  • 2 cups pecan halves

Instructions:

  1. Into a heavy, medium saucepan, combine sugar, salt, milk, and butter
  2. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves
  3. Stir in pecans, and cook over medium-low heat, until mixture reaches soft ball stage (234¬į-240¬į on a candy thermometer)
  4. Remove from heat, and let cool for 2 minutes
  5. Stir mixture rapidly until it begins to thicken and lightly coats the pecans
  6. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto parchment paper
  7. When full cooled, store in an airtight container for up to 1 week

NOTE:  For a really deep-south taste try adding 1/4 cup of fresh, crispy bacon pieces at the same time you stir in the pecans!  Yes BACON!
