Submitted by: Sana Handley 1st Place Candy- Adult

 

2 cups sugar

2 cups brown sugar

2 cups dark corn syrup

2 cups butter

4 cups heavy cream

4 tablespoons vanilla

4 cups pecans

Salt

Dark dipping chocolate

3 teaspoons red chile powder

1 teaspoon red chile infused olive oil

Melt butter, both sugars and corn syrup with 2 cups heavy cream. Watch and stir. It will change color. Then add 2 cups cream, cook and stir until soft ball stage. Remove from heat and add the two teaspoon red chile powder, vanilla, pecans, and salt. Pour into a buttered tray, let stand 24 hours and cut into pieces. Melt dark chocolate with 1 teaspoon red chile powder. I added red chile olive oil to melt easier. Dip your pieces and allow to dry.

    This is the wrong recipe, you need to include the correct recipe with the title. This for the waffle cookies.
