These are a huge favorite of my family. I have been making them for years and they are always a hit.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook everything over medium heat to 240°F on a candy thermometer.
  2. Remove from heat and beat till it starts to thicken. This takes a while, so you have to have good arms!
  3. Drop by large spoonfuls onto wax paper.
  4. Cool and wrap individually in plastic wrap or store in an airtight container.

These were extremely disappointing. I followed the directions carefully and heated the mixture up to 240° with my candy thermometer. It took about 1/2 hour for the mixture to cool down enough for me to spoon it out onto parchment paper. The pralines tasted so sugary as if the sugar never did dissolve. I also think 5 tablespoons of vanilla is overkill. Way too much. I'm going to move on from this recipe to try another as these just do not fit the bill.
