    1 1/2   c            Margarine
      1/2   c            Butter
    1 1/2   c            Granulated sugar
    1       c            Water
    1 1/2   ts           Salt
    1       c            Eng walnuts -- or almonds/chopd
                         -----HAVE READY-----
    1       t            Soda
                         -----ADD AFTER FINISHED-----
      1/2   lb           Dipping chocolate
      3/4   c            Pecans (for top)
 
   *Have soda ready at the stove to add at once. **Stirring constantly between
   236 d. & 290 d. prevents butter from separating. No good if this happens.
   Melt butters slowly; add sugar, water and salt.  Cook at low heat, stirring
   constantly until it reaches 212 degrees. STOP STIRRING until candy reaches
   236 degrees. Add the walnuts and stir constantly until candy reaches 290
   degrees. Remove from heat and add soda, stirring well. Pour onto buttered
   cookie sheet.
    Immediately cut into squares. Will run back together, but can be cracked
   where cut. Add dipping chocolate wafers on top. They will melt & you can
   spread them out. Sprinkle nuts on top (opt.) Dolores McCann, OH
