Oo-ey, Goo-ey goodness. With nuts. Whoa. I am a novice candy maker. Made fudge once this past Xmas and then pralines also that same time. So I'm not 100% sure I did everything the best I could. I used a candy thermometer and cooked the mixture until the thermometer registered at the firm ball stage. That took almost a half hour for me to cook the candy to that point. Perhaps I should have turned the heat up higher on my stove sooner? Dunno. (Total time was about 40 minutes.) I decided to just drop the candies onto wax paper, but now we're having some real difficulties getting them off the paper without the paper sticking to them and tearing and staying stuck on. Next time I'll try something else. But geez, they are good. Thanks for the recipe. Will definitely make again. I got 33 candies from the batch.
Delicious! These tasted just like the pralines that I had last time I went to Savannah, Georgia. They were easy to make and were devoured quickly at a Christmas party I attended. I used toasted pecans and followed the recipe as written. I dropped the candies onto cookie sheets which were lined with parchment paper and sprayed with cooking spray. The candies slid right off! The only issue I had was the candy mixture started setting up in the saucepan before I got all of the candies onto the cookie sheets. I guess I wasn't quick enough. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe. **Made for 2014 Football Pool**
I had my doubts at first, but they turned out perfectly! Great instructions too. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT9
Same thing happened to me. Mine also didn't set all that well so I put them in the fridge. They aren't like the pralines that I've had before but still very good
