    Well I must be the only one NOT capable of having these pralines turn out right! The taste is fantastic but after following every step exactly as written, my praline candies did not firm up enough to pick them up. I wanted to bring them to the Master's Golf Tournament party today and sadly, they are not adequate.

    Made these the other day... pure awesome. I ended up using over three cups of pecans and only got about 25 pralines — but what’s the point of eating a praline that isn’t as big as your head, right?

    Are these pralines chewy or brittle? Thanks!

    I can't believe this recipe!!!! These taste just like the ones I used to get at Mama's Kitchen in New Orleans. I miss being home and these do it for me. They really take me back. Thank you so much for posting this recipe. I can't wait to make another batch for Christmas and the rest of the Holidays.

    Like ScrumptiousWY, I also live in a higher altitude location, and had the same results of dry crumblies. They were delicious dry crumblies none the less.
