I’m back with another enticing food post! While at my grandma’s for Thanksgiving I made pecan candies better known as pecan pralines. It’s a super easy recipe, a tad bit time-consuming, but so worth it!!!
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 can of evaporated milk
2 cups of sugar
2 TSP butter (optional)
1.) Add the 2 cups of sugar to a large pot.
2.) Add your can of evaporated milk
3.) Put your pecans on a tray and put them in the 350 degree oven for 5-7 minutes so they can roast slightly.
4.) Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract to your mixture
(If you want to add 2 TBSP of butter at this point you can. I opted not to.)
5.) Here is where the process gets tedious. You MUST stir this mixture continuously for 25-30 minutes.
You don’t want it to burn and stick to the bottom of your pot. It will start to thicken which is what you want.
6.) Once your mixture has thicken up, add your pecans. You can cut them into smaller pieces or add them whole. I like them whole.
7.) At this point you want to move quickly. Stir your mixture.
8.) On a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper, add dollops of your mixture to cool.
9.) In about 15 minutes once they cool a bit, you can enjoy your homemade pecan pralines!
These were gone in minutes and you’ll love this recipe too! It doesn’t call for a lot. If you decide to try it, please let me know how it turns out for you.
