Colorado Mtn Pecan Caramels (Sweets)
This Pecan Caramel recipe came from a citizen of the South San Juan Mtns of SW Colorado during the 2003 Holidays. They are fantastic and addictive.
3 Cups sugar
1-3/4 Cup Karo syrup
2 Sticks Butter
2 Cup Whipping Cream
1 tsp. Vanilla
3 Cups Pecans
Boil to 242 soft ball (just past) maybe more if you are in the higher elevations. Butter a rectangular metal aluminum pan then add pecans to pan. Pour hot caramel into pan. The aluminum pans are flexible. Caramels are easily extracted on to a cutting board or marble slab. Cut and wrap in wax paper.
