Country.Chef's picture
Ingredients
  Butter 4 Tablespoon (Do Not Use Margarine)
  Heavy cream/Whipping cream 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Light corn syrup 2 Tablespoon
  Granulated sugar 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Packed dark brown sugar 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  White chocolate/White baking bar 2 Ounce, chopped
  Walnuts 6 Ounce, toasted and coarsely chopped (1 1/2 Cups)
Directions

1. Grease 8-inch square baking pan. Line pan with foil, extending foil over rim on two opposite sides; grease foil.
2. In heavy 4-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add cream, corn syrup, and granulated and brown sugars; cook over high heat, stirring, until sugars have completely dissolved and mixture is bubbling. With pastry brush dipped in cold water, wash down sugar crystals on side of the saucepan.
3. Set candy thermometer in place; continue cooking, without stirring, until temperature reaches 234° to 240°F (soft-ball stage), 15 to 20 minutes.
4. Remove saucepan from heat. Without stirring, cool mixture to 210°F, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle chopped white chocolate over mixture; let stand 1 minute.
5. With wooden spoon, stir in walnuts just until mixed (do not overmix). Immediately pour mixture into prepared pan (do not scrape mixture from saucepan).
6. Cool in pan on wire rack until firm but still warm, about 30 minutes. Remove candy from pan by lifting edges of foil and place on cutting board. Cut into 8 strips, then cut each strip crosswise into 8 pieces. Cool completely on foil on wire rack. With spatula, lift candy away from foil. Layer between waxed paper in airtight container. Store at room temperature up to 3 weeks.
