      Old South Pecan Candy Log/Squares
      Recipe by: Rita Heikenfeld, Lazarus-Macy’s and Ridge Market

      28 caramels
      1/4 cup half & half
      2 tablespoons butter
      1/2 to 1 teaspoon vanilla
      2 cups confectioners’ sugar
      2 cups pecan halves, toasted and chopped
      Extra chopped pecans or melted chocolate (opt)

      Heat caramels with half & half and butter over low heat until melted. Stir
      in sugar and nuts. Pour onto buttered or sprayed waxed paper, plastic wrap
      or parchment.

      Shape into 16-20″ roll. Chill a few hours before cutting into
      1/2″ slices.

      Tips from Rita’s kitchen:

      If you want, dip half of each slice into melted chocolate, or roll entire
      log into finely chopped nuts before cutting.

      Or drizzle chocolate on top of roll before cutting. Make sure you let
      chocolate harden in refrigerator or in a cool place before cutting. Store in
      cool dry place, covered.

      Makes about 32 slices.

      Instead of rolling into a log, pat or roll into 1/2″ square. Or pour into
      foil lined and sprayed pan (let foil hang over edges of pan). Chill and cut
      into squares (if using pan, lift out foil by edges, flip onto cutting board
      and peel off foil before cutting) and proceed with decorating as desired.

      Don’t like pecans? Any nuts, including soy, will do.
