Since I knew it would be dangerous to keep these little bits of sugary goodness in the house too long, I decided to share them. They received rave reviews! Not 5 minutes after I dropped some of to a friend, I got this lovely text.
Worth every calorie in them. Thanks lady!!"
They really are that good!
2 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups chopped pecans
2 cups shredded coconut
In a large sauce pan, combine sugar, evaporated milk, corn syrup and sugar. Bring to a rolling boil over medium-high heat, then boil 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, pecans and coconut. Stir for 4 minutes (the mixture with thicken a bit). Drop by the spoonful onto waxed paper. Let sit to harden - about 1 hour.
