Cool, then cut into bars or pieces.

In a large saucepan, over medium-high to high heat, mix and melt the sugar, corn syrup, milk, and water. Make sure you have a large pan, because the mixture will boil up and take up a lot more space than you think. Drop the heat to medium, and begin to stir constantly until the candy is firm, but not rolling into a hard ball. Remove from the heat and immediately add the butter, vanilla extract, and pecans. Beat this by hand until the candy holds its shape when some is dropped onto waxed paper. Drop a teaspoon at a time onto the waxed paper, but work fast... it stiffens up very quickly. Let it cool before breaking up and eating. Makes 50 candies.
NOTE: If you find that the candy is setting up before you can get it onto the waxed paper, just reheat in the saucepan, add a little more milk, and try again.
