It is a soft caramel with pecans. My great-grandmother would make these for her children and grandchildren. She would roll the caramel, pinch off a piece, place it on wax paper, and then twist the paper shut like you see saltwater taffy pieces today.
I have tried every forum and resource I can think of. I even contacted NPR when they had a lost recipe segment -- I almost made it to working with some candy experts that time.
My mother was born in 1943 and has lived her entire life in Texas. My great-grandmother was born in Texas in 1892 (and lived her entire life in Texas). Her parents were from Alabama. Her father's family was from South Carolina. Her mother's family was from Georgia. I mention all of this with the hope that maybe the candy was regional.
Online, I've found two references to this candy. One was a caption about a painting. The second was a box for sale on a collectibles website. I would love for to help my mom find or recreate this recipe!
This receipe is called " Pecan Caramels" quite closer to what you describe. You decide.
Suggestion: There is more to this recipe.
