“My Mom, sisters and I would not feel like it was Christmas unless we had made this delicious candy. It tastes somewhere between fudge and caramels. It's best to use a wooden spoon to stir this candy with.” - by Jill Saunders
Original recipe yields 30 to 40 pieces
- Butter a 9x13 inch pan and set aside.
- Place the 2 cups sugar in a heavy bottomed saucepan. Stir over low heat until sugar has completely melted.
- Meanwhile, in a large heavy saucepan combine the 4 cups sugar and heavy cream. Stir and heat over low.
- Once the 2 cups of sugar has completely melted, pour it in a fine stream into the sugar/cream mixture while stirring vigorously. Raise heat to medium low and cook, stirring frequently, until it reaches 244 to 248 degrees F (118 to 120 degrees C) on a candy thermometer.
- Remove from heat and vigorously stir in the baking soda. Stir in the butter until melted. Set aside to cool for 20 minutes. Stir in the vanilla and beat with a wooden spoon until non-glossy and it starts to set up. Stir in the nuts and spread into the prepared pan. Cool and cut into bite-size pieces.

When making this, keep in mind that when you add the baking soda, the mixture is going to "bubble up". It's going to bubble up A LOT!!! This bubbled up and OVER the top of my pan and all over the top of my new stove and ran down into the burners. I spent the 20 minute cooling period cleaning up the mess. Once I got it all under control, the candy was good. I would use a pan closer to a dutch oven sized pan next time. Yes, I will make it again, but I'll be a little wiser about it. :)"
