"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Combine Karo Syrup and Water in a saucepan; mix well. Add sugar and cook to soft ball stage. Meanwhile, beat egg whites until stiff. Slowly pour about 1/2 of syrup mixture into stiffened egg whites beating continuously as you do. Continue to cook remaining syrup mixture until it reaches crackle stage. Beat remaining syrup mixture into egg mixture until it becomes thick. Then hand beat until the gloss is gone. Roll candy on greased surface to form a 1 to 2 inch rope. Roll in nuts and cut into logs. Wrap in plastic wrap to store. In place of nuts you can use coconut or powdered sugar. Slice to serve.
