Pralines Recipe by Paula Deen

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup pecan halves
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 3 tablespoons dark corn syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar

Preparation

Butter the sides of a heavy 2-quart saucepan. Place the sugar, salt, dark corn syrup, milk and butter in saucepan. Over medium heat, stir mixture constantly with a wooden spoon until sugars have dissolved and mixture comes to a boil. Continue to cook to a soft ball stage, approximately 236° on a candy thermometer. If you do a cold water test, the ball of candy will flatten when you take it out of the water. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes.

 

Add the vanilla and nuts, and beat with a spoon by hand for approximately 2 minutes or until candy is slightly thick and begins to lose its gloss. Quickly drop heaping tablespoons onto waxed paper. If the candy becomes stiff, add a few drops of hot water.
