Healthy Yummy Pecan Pralines Recipe

Pecans are cooked to the soft ball stage with brown sugar, white sugar, evaporated milk and butter and then beaten and poured on a slab to firm up in these sweet, chewy candies.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/4 cups pecan halves
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS:

1. Generously grease a large slab or baking sheet.

2. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine brown sugar, white sugar and milk. Bring to a boil. Stir in butter, pecans and vanilla.

3. Heat, without stirring, to between 234 and 240 degrees F (112 to 116 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface. Remove from heat and let cool 5 minutes.

4. Beat until thickened, then pour immediately onto prepared surface and let rest until firm and completely cool before cutting.

Original recipe yield: 20 pralines.
