I am not sure when I aquired this recipe, but I know that I have been making it a long time. I like to take this to family gatherings - I never take any back home.

Serves:

approx.24

Prep:

5 Min

Cook:

15 Min

Ingredients

1 box
butterscotch pudding or chocolate pudding (cook and serve kind- not instant)
1 c
sugar
1/2 c
light brown sugar, packed
1/2 c
evaporated milk (not sweetened condensed)
3 Tbsp
butter or margarine
1 1/2 c
walnuts or pecan pieces **more or less - i like more**

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix all ingredients together in a medium saucepan.

Cook over med-hi heat, stirring constantly, until boiling.
2
When top is covered with small bubbles, reduce the heat and cook 3-5 minutes longer.

Remove from heat.
3
Stir to cool candy down. (I will usually put bottom of pan in cold water in sink to speed the cooling process) Top of mixture should still be a bit shiney.

Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper. Let cool completely, it will harden as it cools.

****NOTE****

If mixture cools too much before dropping onto wax paper, it may begin to harden in the pan. ** Must work fast if this happens **

If mixture is not cool enough when dropped onto wax paper, it will run and may not harden at all. ** Use for ice cream topping if this happens **

I know this sounds like a picky process. I usually stir mine until the shine just starts to go...then I work quickly.
