    This is a chewy pecan praline that is quite similar to those made by Lamme's Candies in Austin, Tx.

      We got some fresh, new crop pecans from my best friend in Texas, so I made this recipe. There are only two of us, and I halved the ingredients. This still made the best caramel type praline I have ever had. The caramel is just firm, buttery and smooth. This is possibly my favorite candy ever.

      Excellent....I spent $55 on a box of Texas Chewy Pralines from Neiman Marcus.....never again! These are delicious...the hardest part is cutting the plastic wrap.....I think I need a shorter pot for the hard to hold it over the caramel...realllly hot Thank you!<br/><br/>Update<br/>Used shorter pot...much better...I found that if I cook on a higher heat (med high/high), it all goes much faster!<br/>Used teaspoons to drop on to non-stick aluminum foil...(tried to butter cookie sheet - doesn't work, sticks).<br/>Made 3 batches in one day...3 different sizes...small 15 grams, medium 20 grams, large 25 grams (approximate) I now have praline bites and then the bigger size. Also tried it with macadamia nuts...good, but because macnuts are smooth, harder to keep the caramel on...<br/>Thinking about trying to make pecan rolls and then just slice...will try next time.
