i use to make these every year, some years they turned out well and some not so well, i used a candy thermometer , but i put in the soda when i put in the pecans and vanilla, to make it foam up, it was not on the recipe i had , i just added it, lol, its tough stiring and knowing at what point to start droping them, i also changed some milk to evaporated milk, not all of it, just some, but for me it was not easy, lol,,oh i see u use half and half, i never did that, but kinda with evaporated

ok i see ,i cooked mine with the milk,, u added after u took it off, i also uses some
cream of tartar.but the recipes i used called for cooking it with the milk, not adding it after, i cant remember if the butter was before or after, i would have to look,but the last time 2 trys did not work good,so i quit , and have not for a few years, i think the new candy thermometer was not accurate, it got to hot.
