Ingredients

  • 2 cups unsalted butter
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Instructions

  1. Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Place the pan on a wire cooling rack.

  2. Add the butter, sugar, corn syrup, vanilla extract and salt to a large heavy-bottom saucepan. 

  3. Clamp a candy thermometer to the saucepan. 

  4. Melt everything together over medium heat until smooth.

  5. Bring the mixture to a boil while whisking constantly. Continue whisking the mixture as it boils until it reaches 290F or the "hard crack" stage. This will take about 10-15 minutes and the mixture will be amber/caramel in color.

  6. Immediately pour the mixture into the lined jelly roll pan.

  7. Let sit for 1-2 minutes, then sprinkle the chocolate chips on top. After 1 more minute spread the chocolate smooth and sprinkle the chopped pecans on top. 

  8. Harden at room temperature for 2hours, then cut into pieces with a thick sharp knife.
