      Title: Pecan caramel clusters
 Categories: Candies, Chocolate, Christmas, Gifts
      Yield: 12 Servings
 
      1 c  Cream; Light
      1 c  Sugar
    1/2 c  Light Corn Syrup; Karo
    1/4 ts Salt
      3 tb Butter Or Regular Margarine
    1/2 ts Vanilla
  2 1/2 c  Pecans; Chopped
      6 oz Chocolate Chips; Semi-Sweet
 
  Heat the light cream in a heavy 2-quart saucepan to lukewarm (110
  degrees F.).  Reserve 1/2 c cream and set it aside. Add the sugar,
  corn syrup and salt to the remaining 1/2 cup of cream in the
  saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the
  mixture boils. Slow stir in the reserved cream. Cook, stirring
  constantly, for 5 minutes. Stir in the butter, 1 tsp at a time,
  stirring constantly. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until
  the mixture reaches the soft ball stage, (234 Degrees F.) on the
  candy thermometer. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla.
  Arrange the pecans on a waxed-paper lined baking sheet. Drop the
  mixture by teaspoonfuls onto the pecans. As the clusters cool, remove
  with a metal spatula to another waxed-paper lined baking sheet. Push
  the remaining pecans together and repeat until all of the candy
  mixture is used. If the mixture becomes too thick, heat over low
  heat. Melt the chocolate chips over hot water and stir until smooth.
  Spread on the top of each pecan cluster.  Let stand until the
  chocolate is set and store the candies in a cool place.
  
  Makes about 4 dozen.
