What a fun way to fix that ‘sweet-tooth’ you all have but know that it is homemade with love, tastes fantastic and is easy to make. Give it a try. The flavours can be changed just by using the different coffee creamer flavourings out there. You know, the kind that you pour in, looks like cream but tastes like a fancy gourmet coffee.
- 3 tbsp. butter
- 1 cup whipping cream (36% if you can)
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 2 tbsp corn syrup
- 1 tbsp. butter pecan coffee creamer
- 1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
In a large pot, combine the butter, sugars, syrup. Stir to mix and bring to a boil. Simmer over medium heat until the candy thermometer reaches 241 degrees.
Immediately remove from the heat and add the creamer, but DO NOT stir. Leave for 20 minutes to room temperature.
Butter a 9 inch square pan. Here is where the fun begins.
Fill the sink with 2 inches cold water and put the pan inside and beat with a wooden spoon until it begins to thicken. Add the pecans and continue beating until it thickens and begins to lose its shine.
When no longer shiny, transfer to the prepared pan and smooth the top down. You will have to work equickly or the sugar will begin to crystalize.
Do not cut the squares until it has rested for 2 hours at room temperature.
