Old Candy Recipe

I need help, I am looking for an old recipe that uses condensed milk and nuts. My childhood babysitter used to make it for me weekly and she called it "Rosemary Candy" I have not been able to find anything close to it. Does anyone have any clues? Thanks!

can you describe it more please- texture, shape, size, what nuts.
Did she cook it on the stove or in the oven, or was it just mixed in a bowl? what era was this- 50's, 80's? did you try looking in joy of cooking? rosemary could be the herb or a cook's name...
What part of what country were you in (might be a regional food.)
Have you tried googling " condensed milk candy with nuts"?

I think it's the first one? She made it on the stove, it is a Texas or maybe southern thing. I may try the first one. It was super creamy, with pecans . I don't remember her ever using Karo, (probably my memory) it was condensed or evaporated milk she cooked with sugar then added the nuts. I used to help her make it, but I'm sure I have forgotten steps.

Coconut pecan truffle
ingredients
1 stick butter, melted
1 can (14 ounce size) sweetened condensed milk
2.5 cups shredded coconut
3.5 cups finely chopped, lightly toasted pecans
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 pounds powdered sugar
12 ounces melted chocolate for dipping


directions
(Keep in mind you can also candie the pecans first)
Stir together butter, condensed milk, coconut, nuts and vanilla. Add enough powdered sugar to form a stiff dough. (You may not need all of the sugar.) Refrigerate until well chilled, for at least one hour and preferably overnight.

Form mixture into compact balls. Chill again, or freeze, before dipping.

Skewer each ball on a toothpick and dip in melted chocolate to coat thoroughly. Place on baking parchment or waxed paper, remove toothpick, and set aside for chocolate to harden at room temperature.
