How to Make Pecan Candy Log
- Combine the first 4 ingredients in a mixing bowl, kneading in sugar. Shape into 8 rolls that are 1-inch in diameter.
Wrap rolls in wax paper and put in freezer and freeze overnight.
Remove paper from caramels and place in top of double boiler; add the evaporated milk( or cream).
Remove from heat once they are melted and mixed with the milk, but keep over hot water.
Dip the marshmallow rolls, first in melted caramel to cover, then roll in chopped nuts on foil, pressing nuts firmly into the caramel with buttered hands. Or with buttered gloves from the freezer (latex type) Cool, then wrap in waxed paper; store in cool,dry place. Will keep for months, if no one finds them!
