  • 3 cups brown sugar
  • 2 cups light corn syrup
  • 1 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/3 cups chopped walnuts
Combine sugar, corn syrup, butter and milk in a heavy saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved and mixture boils. Continue cooking to 248°, stirring now and then to prevent scorching. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and walnuts. Pour into parchment lined 9-inch square pan. Let set for half a day. Cut into squares and wrap in confectionary waxed paper or plastic wrap.
