Ingredients

2 large egg whites
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup pecans


Beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff.


Line a baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper. Put the sugar, corn syrup, and water in a medium-size heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir to dissolve the sugar, bring to a boil and cook until the temperature reaches 260 degrees F on a candy thermometer, or the hard-ball stage, when a bit of the mixture dropped into cold water holds its shape, 10 to 15 minutes.


Remove from the heat. Pour in a thin steady stream into the beaten egg whites and beat with an electric mixer on high for about 3 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl.


Add the vanilla, and continue beating on high just until the candy starts to lose its gloss, 5 to 6 minutes.


When the beaters are lifted, the mixture should fall in a ribbon that mounds on itself.


If the mixture flattens out, beat again for 1 minute more.


If the mixture is too thick to drop, beat in a few drops of hot water until the candy is a softer consistency.


Add the pecans, stir to mix, and quickly drop the mixture by tablespoons onto the prepared sheet. Place the candies on a serving candy dish and pass.

Notes

This recipe is from Emeril. It was very easy and very yummy!

If the candy is poured into a pan and cut into squares, you should have about 48 pieces
