My grandparents make these things called pralines practically every time there is something special going on. Pralines are pretty easy to find in stores in the South, but I can vouch for the fact that theirs are the best! If you're looking for a super easy desert to bring to holiday parties or Christmas dinners, look no further! All you'll need is :
Then mix your milk, sugar, and pecans in a pot on high heat (stir every so often because it can't stick to the pot!)
When it starts boiling you can turn it down to medium heat
Keep stirring so it doesn't stick and it should start turning this glorious golden brown
After about 15 minutes, it should get thick enough to where when you're stirring, you can see the bottom of the pot...
Between 15-20 minutes, when it gets thick enough to really see the bottom, take it off the burner and add your butter
This recipe should make around 20 depending on how big they are, and you can just plop them down on foil (but make sure to spray it with non stick spray)
When you see that they've cooled, flip them over to cool the bottoms, which also makes them a bit flatter
After letting them cool for about 30 minutes, you can now place them on a platter to serve!
We packaged ours up nicely in little baggies as teacher gifts!
Here's the cute little recipe card just for giggles! It's so old!
