WOW..these are awesome, but take some watching to not burn them.

Top Review by Rebekah of SFD

I was looking for a gluten free option for topping no-bake pumpkin pudding. I didn't have SC, so I substituted milk which is like traditional southern pralines. I know the flavor is different than if I'd used SC, but these were still very good, and topped my dessert wonderfully!
