Maple Pralines

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by OhMyStars

I first made these as a teenager using the 1940 Edition of the Prudence Penny cookbook published by the San Francisco Examiner. I loved them then, and still do now! A pretty easy way to ease into candymaking. Cooking time is cooling time.

This makes a maple sugar candy with nuts. It's really good, and easy, but not what I mean when I say "praline". A praline should break into shards and be powderable. I count on that for making praline buttercreams, etc.
