👋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.
