      These were somewhat tasty. They're a lot like orangy-flavored pecan pralines.

      I made these over the Christmas holidays, and they lasted about 30 minutes. DH was eating them so fast, the rest of us almost didn't get any! He's already asked me to make them again, but I think next time I'll hide half of them for the rest of us! lol Thanks for a great recipe.
