3 C. sugar
1/2 C. white karo syrup
3/4 C. water
1 t. vanilla
1/2 t salt
2 egg whites
3/4 C nuts

In large pan bring sugar, syrup & water to a boil (stirring to disolve sugar)..
test for soft ball stage ( drop syrup into room temp water to test for soft ball)
add salt and turn down and keep hot...
Beat egg whites till stiff peak forms.

Slowly with mixer running add syrup to the egg whites and all time scraping sides of bowl...
Add in vanilla and beat for few more minutes...

Turn mixer off and take bowl and keep turning the candy to cool it down... (wooden spoon works good as you can take it into the candy then pull it up above candy so that it is liken to pulling taffy...this allows the candy to cool....)
Candy will loose its gloss as it cools...
Add nuts & food coloring if desired....

Put out onto lightly buttered platter and allow to finish cooling and setting....
