Pecan Praline Candy

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

These are the ultimate pralines, so buttery and just the right texture, this is one of my family's all-time favorite cookie. (note: since there is no baking time with these cookies... prep time is thermometer cooking time plus prep time)

I am from south Louisiana and this is the real deal. I used marshmallow creme. The candy was melt in your mouth good.
