👋The South’s Finest Pralines😋


    • 1 1/2 c sugar
    • 1 1/2 c packed light brown sugar
    • 1/8 tsp salt
    • 3 Tbsp dark corn syrup
    • 1 c evaporated milk
    • 2 Tbsp butter
    • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
    • 1 1/2 c pecan halves



    1In a 2 quart sauce pan, put the sugars, salt, corn syrup, milk, and butter in. Over medium heat, stir mixture constantly with a wooden spoon until sugars have dissolved and mixture comes to a boil.

    2Continue to cook to a soft ball stage, approximately 236 degrees F on a candy thermometer.

    3Remove from heat and allow it to cool for 8 minutes.

    4Add 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.

    5Quickly drop heaping tablespoons onto parchment paper. If the candy becomes stiff, add a few drops of hot water.
