Granny has been making Seaside Candy Roll at Christmas for as long as I can remember. It’s super easy and quick-and since you store it in the frig-it’s long lasting and perfect for taking along with you to a Christmas gathering.
- 1 cup pecans
- 1/3 cup margarine
- 1/3 cup light corn syrup
- 1 teaspoon maple flavoring
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 pound powdered sugar (4 1/2 cups)
*Chop 1/2 cup of the pecans finely and 1/2 cup coarsely and set aside; mix together margarine, corn syrup, maple flavoring and salt;
*start adding powdered sugar to the corn syrup mixture a cup or so at a time;
*as you add the powdered sugar-the mixture will began to have the texture of dough;
*turn the mixture out-and knead in the rest of the powdered sugar and the finely chopped nuts;
*once the mixture is smooth-divide it in half; roll/shape each half into a roll 2 inches thick; brush rolls with additional corn syrup;
*roll in coarsely chopped nuts; wrap in wax paper or foil and chill; slice into 1/4 inch pieces before serving.
I often skip the last step-cause it’s the messiest-and the Seaside Candy Rolls still taste great.
Ever had Seaside Candy Roll before?
