The Holiday's are quickly approaching and it seems I have food on my mind instead of shopping! LOL! I have visions of Chocolate Covered Pretzels, Peanut Brittle, Pecan Divinity and Sugar Cookies dancing in my head.
In a large saucepan, combine the sugar and water. Cook over medium heat, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reaches 250 degrees F. Remove from the heat, stir in marshmallow cream, vanilla and pecans. Continue stirring until candy cools and begins to hold its shape when dropped from a spoon. Quickly drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper.
