Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Heavy whipping cream infused with 3 tsp On-the-Go Metro loose tea
  • 1 cup Brown sugar
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Butter
  • 1 cup Pecans chopped

Instructions

  1. The day before making this recipe, add On-the-Go Metro loose tea directly to the whipping cream. Cover and place into the refrigerator to cold-steep overnight (10-12 hours). The next day, strain out tea before using.

  2. Combine sugar, brown sugar, and tea-infused whipping cream in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Boil to 234º F (drop tiny bits into a cup of water to test for "soft ball" stage).
  3. Remove from heat, then add butter and let it melt into the candy without stirring (about a minute).

  4. Stir in pecans, then drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet covered with aluminum foil. If candy hardens before you can spoon it out, just add a couple of spoons of hot water and stir until it softens again.

  5. Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes.
