      Easy to make and set up perfectly. I used butter instead of margarine. After removing from the heat, the mixture took a long time to cool, but once it did, it set up fast. I love pralines! Made for the Dining Daredevils for ZWT5 Family Picks.

      This is not a 30 minute recipe by far! 30 minutes later they are still sitting to cool down and thicken. I was quite disappointed as was my client. She wanted them for dessert. I hope after her nap they will have thickened to the right consistency.

      I just finished this recipe with my children. We love it. It was easy to make, one thing I had to substitue the Karo syrup with light Karo syrup. It still came out perfest. I even got to use my brand new candy thermometer. I will definitely be doing the recipe for many years to come. Thanks for posting.
