This is the first recipe I've tried for pralines. They turned out great. My husband is a huge praline fan, and said these are as good as the ones we buy in Savannah. I used dark brown sugar because that's what I had, but I really don't think that mattered. It was very easy for those of us who are terrified of a candy thermometer!

These were very good. My candy thermometer broke and my first batch of my other pralines messed up. I found this one and it was really good. Thanks!
