4 c sugar
6 rounded T. cocoa [My mom uses less.]
l tsp. salt
l/3 c white corn syrup
l 1/3 c milk
¾ cube butter
l tsp. vanilla
Cook together until sample in cold water can be gathered up into a soft wad. Remove from heat and add butter. Allow to cool until hand can be held on the bottom of the pan. Add vanilla and stir until candy loses its gloss and becomes creamy-looking. Add nuts and pour out onto buttered platter before candy becomes too thick.
Notes from DeLynne: I think Mother used to make this but Uncle Foster Harrison created the recipe.
