1. 2 cups granulated sugar
2. 1 cup dark or light brown sugar
3. 1 stick (1/4 pound) butter
4. 1 cup of milk
5. 2 tablespoons Karo syrup
6. 4 cups pecan halves (if larger halves, crush in small pieces).
Put all ingredients except the pecans in a 3-quart saucepan and cook for about 20 minutes after boiling starts, stirring occasionally. Add the pecan and cook the mixture until the liquid forms ball when is dropped into cold water. Stir well then drop spoonfuls on waxed paper. Place a few sheets of newspaper beneath the waxed paper. I find it convenient to place a small table near the stove, over which I put a few sheets of newspaper and put the waxed paper over that.
