1 stick butter

Directions:
Cook in big kettle. Put top on with a bead flame. Stire occasionally. When the sugar has thoroughly dissolved, turn flame up until mixture starts to boil. Then, take the top off and put a candy thermometer in. Allow to boil until the thermometer reaches 238. Pour over stick of butter placed on a marble. Knead until creamy. At first, you will need to knead with kitchen utensils because the mixture will be extremely hot. As it cools, you can use your hands. Roll mixture into many small balls. The candy can be dipped or not.

Note: Make adjustments for electric stove.

Personal Notes:
My mother had a marble table top which she used to make this candy. After kneading and making the balls, she would dip each ball in chocolate and decorate the top with a pecan.
