To make this scrumptious Oklahoma Nut Candy, you’ll need the following ingredients:
What you need:
6 cups of sugar, cut up into pieces
2 cups of thick, rich cream
1/2 cups of butter without salt
1/4 teaspoon of soda
1 teaspoon of vanilla, which smells good
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans, whichever you like better.
Before we start, gather the necessary kitchen equipment:
- A heavy-bottomed saucepan
- A wooden spoon or heat-resistant spatula
- A baking sheet lined with parchment paper
- A candy thermometer (optional, but recommended)
- A heatproof bowl
- A whisk
How To Make Oklahoma Nut Candy?
First, grease a 9×13 baking dish lightly and set it away for later.
Put 2 cups of sugar in a small, heavy-bottomed pot and let it cook gently over low heat. Stir this mixture often until all of the sugar has melted, which should take about 20 minutes.
In the meantime, mix the heavy cream and the last 4 cups of sugar in a big saucepan or Dutch oven. Keep the heat on low and let this mixture slowly simmer while the sugar continues to melt in the smaller pot.
Once the sugar has melted, add it slowly to the big pot while stirring all the time to make sure it mixes well.
Turn the heat up to medium and let the mixture cook until it hits 244 degrees Fahrenheit, which means it has reached the softball stage.
Take the pot off the heat and stir in the baking soda, making sure it’s all mixed in.
Add the butter and vanilla and stir constantly until all the butter has melted and the mixture is smooth.
Give this sweet mixture about 20 minutes to settle.
Once it has rested, add the chopped nuts and mix until the shine is gone. After that, put the mixture in a baking dish that you have already prepared.
Let the candy cool for at least an hour or two, or better yet, leave it overnight. Once it has cooled, cut it into small pieces that can be eaten in one bite.
Your homemade Oklahoma Nutty Delight candy is now ready to be eaten. This recipe brings out the sweetness of life and is great to share on special occasions or just when you want to treat yourself. Have fun!

Mix Up the Nuts: Try using different kinds of nuts together to give this standard recipe a new twist.
How to Store: To keep your Oklahoma Nut Candy crunchy and fresh, store it at room temperature in a jar that keeps air out. It should keep going for at least two weeks.
Questions you may ask
Q: Can I replace plain butter with salted butter?
A: If you want to control how salty something is, it’s better to use plain butter. But if all you have is salted butter, cut back on the salt in the dish.
Q: If I can’t eat nuts, can I make this candy without nuts?
A: Yes, of course! You can make a tasty homemade toffee candy without the nuts.
Q: How do I keep sugar from getting crystallized while I’m cooking?
A: Make sure there are no sugar crystals on the sides of the pan to keep it from getting hard. You can use a pastry brush and water to get rid of any sugar crystals on the sides.
