DIRECTIONS

  • Combine sugar, syrup, water, and pecans in heavy 3-quart saucepan.
  • Stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved and mixture comes to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture reaches soft-ball stage (small amount forms soft ball when dropped into cold water).
  • Remove saucepan from heat; add margarine and vanilla.
  • Allow candy to cool.
  • Whip until mixture gradually changes to lighter color and becomes creamy.
  • Drop by tablespoons onto buttered cookie sheet (Push mixture from tablespoon with a teaspoon to hasten dropping before praline becomes too firm to shape).
