  • 3 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup brewed coffee
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine

  2. Remove from heat, and add butter, vanilla, and salt (do not stir). Cool to 175°. Stir in pecans, and beat with a wooden spoon until mixture thickens and begins to lose its gloss. Spread into a buttered 8-inch square pan. Cool until firm. Cut into squares.
