What You Need

 vanilla wafers
cup  granulated sugar
cup  firmly packed light brown sugar
cup  whipping cream
cup  water
Tbsp.  margarine or butter
cup  chopped PLANTERS Pecans
tsp.  vanilla

Make It

COVER 2 baking sheets with wax paper; place 12 wafers, 2 inches apart, on each prepared baking sheet. Set aside.

COMBINE granulated sugar, brown sugar, cream and water in 3-qt. saucepan; cook on medium heat until sugar is dissolved, stirring constantly. Cook, without stirring, until temperature reaches 235°F (soft ball stage). Add margarine. (Do not stir.) Cool 30 min. or until temperature of sugar mixture is reduced to 150°F.

ADD pecans and vanilla; beat with wooden spoon 2 to 3 min. until candy begins to thicken but is still glossy. Immediately spoon 1 tablespoonful of the sugar mixture over each wafer. (If mixture becomes stiff, stir in a few drops of water.) Cool completely until firm; peel from wax paper. Store in airtight container at room temperature.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Keeping it Safe
When preparing hot sugar syrups, keep a bowl of ice water nearby to cool off any unexpected burns.
