This came from Tupperware years ago, but is still a family favorite.
List of Ingredients
- 3 c. sugar
- 3/4 c. white Karo
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 3/4 c. water
- 2 egg whites
- 1 (3oz) package fruit flavored Jello
- 1 c. chopped pecans
- In a medium saucepan over a low burner, combine sugar, Karo, vanilla and water. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Heat to 250-265° or to a hard ball stage.
- Meanwhile, beat egg whites until stiff; slowly add gelatin while beating until stiff peaks form. Continue beating and slowly pour syrup mixture in a thin stream over the egg mixture. Beat until mixture thickens and loses its gloss. Stir in pecans.
- Drop by teaspoons onto wax paper. After cooling, place in an airtight container.
