Super Easy Amish Praline Pecan Crunch

This recipe is from Sue Miller, from the Amish-Country Cookbook, Vol. III. It was super easy, and my family loved the original vanilla flavor. Then I tried more flavors like butter rum; toffee; and maple. These were perfect for the Christmas holidays!! I gave them as gifts and everyone said they were delicious and wanted more!!

Ingredients

THIS IS A DOUBLE RECIPE

1/2 c
light corn syrup
1/2 c
firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 c
butter
1 tsp
vanilla (or experiment like i did)
1/2 tsp
baking soda
10 c
pecan halves

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine corn syrup, brown sugar and butter in microwave save bowl. Microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes. Stir and microwave another 1/2 to 1 1/2 minutes (I did 1/2 only in new microwave) or until boiling.
2
Add vanilla (or other flavor) and baking soda and stir thoroughly. It will begin to foam. Pour mixture over pecans. Stir until coated evenly.
3
Spread on baking sheet lined with silpat or wax paper and bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour. Stir every 20 minutes. Cool before storing in container. Pecans will stick together but easily break apart into crunch size pieces.
