- 2 cups butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 3 tablespoons water
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups whole pecans
- Salt for topping
How to Bake
- In a heavy bottomed stainless skillet, over medium heat, combine the butter, sugar, water and salt. As the butter melts, stir a few times with a wooden spoon or spatula to combine. Bring to a boil and then don't stir or touch the mixture again until it is caramel colored.
- While the toffee is boiling, prepare a large baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper or a silpat mat. (Do not use waxed paper, it will melt.) Scatter the pecans across the prepared baking sheet.
- Once the toffee is caramel colored, remove from the heat and add the vanilla. Stir to combine. Quickly pour the toffee over the pecans. Sprinkle with salt. Let cool completely.
- When the toffee is cool, break into pieces and sprinkle on top of your Mason Dixie Sweet Rolls!
