Hot sugar can be dangerous. Take extra care when making candy and keep small kids and pets away from the work area.

This job requires your full attention. Constant stirring is required as is watching the thermometer.

Ingredients

2 cups butter (4 sticks)
1 1/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup maple syrup
3 oz. water
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla

4. Have vanilla and salt prepared in a small bowl near the stove.
5. Cook the mixture over medium-high heat to 298° on a candy thermometer (about 10 minutes). Stir constantly.
6. Immediately remove from the heat and quickly stir in vanilla and salt.
7. Pour onto the four pieces of parchment.
8. Sprinkle the pecans over the entire area of the candy.
9. Place the other parchment, oiled side down, on top of the candy. Use a rolling pin to roll out to about 1/4 inch thick.
