  1. In a heavy saucepan, mix together sugar, light corn syrup, and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture reaches 245°F (120°C), about 20 to 25 minutes, or forms a firm ball when dropped into cold water. Gradually add milk, margarine, and pecan halves. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes after adding the last ingredient, returning the mixture to a boil.

  2. Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla.

  3. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheets.
