Oklahoma Nut Candy

  1. Ingredients:
    • 2 cups granulated sugar
    • 1 cup whole milk
    • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 2 cups mixed nuts (pecans, walnuts, almonds)
    Directions:
    1. In a large saucepan, combine the granulated sugar, whole milk, and unsalted butter. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture reaches the soft-ball stage (235-240°F or 112-116°C) on a candy thermometer.
