Made these for a cooking tasting contest at my church, but they were out before the contest even began! Dang!

1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1.5 cups granulated sugar
2 cups pecans
2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1. In a saucepan, combine granulated sugar, brown sugar, evaporated milk, corn syrup, and butter. Heat and stir until fully blended.
2. Bring to a boil and maintain for 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
3. Stir in vanilla extract and salt.
4. Gradually add shredded coconut and pecans. Stir for 3-4 minutes until well mixed and slightly thickened.

5. Use a tablespoon or scoop to portion the mixture onto wax paper-lined baking sheets.
