Oklahoma Brown Candy

Oklahoma Brown candy is pretty much just sugar, butter, cream, and vanilla, all mixed and boiled together.

I started by cooking some of the sugar, until it turned into and amber liquid, then we added that to the sugar and cream that was being simmered. The recipe said to take five minutes to pour the liquid sugar into the other pot. That's how slow we had to go. We then boiled it to the firm ball stage.

After adding some butter, it cooled for awhile and then we had to stir it for 15 minutes straight with a wooden spoon. My dad had to help at the end because it was getting hard to mix. I took this photo of him stirring the pot.

It tastes like caramel with the texture of fudge. We tried some with pecans and some plain.
