Mix cocoa, sugar, salt and milk together in a large pot. Cook until candy thermometer reads softball stage (or you can use the drop
in a cold cup of water test). Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla. Stir until the shine goes away (this takes a little while).
If adding pecan halves, stir those in now. Pour into buttered pans to set up.
