Cajun Pralines...An easy to make Holiday Candy!!

Sunday, December 3, 2017

Yesterday, I was asked by someone for my Cajun praline recipe, so I decided to share it with our Buzz readers. Being part Cajun and from Southern Louisiana, pralines are a traditional holiday candy in our family. And the best part is that they're easy to make! Only takes a few minutes to make.

 

 

 

The recipe below makes a "double" batch yielding about 4 dozen pralines, depending on your spoon size. Make sure you get the soft ball stage correct because cooking too little or too long could cause you big problems!! Take a look at our Perfect Praline video below on the bottom of of the web site.

 

It's a classic!

 

 

 

2 cups brown sugar

 

2 cups white sugar

 

1 cup evaporated milk

 

A very small pinch of salt

 

2 tbs.'s melted butter

 

2 tbs.'s vanilla

 

2 cups pecans, whole or chopped

 

 

 

*Mix the brown and white sugar, evaporated milk and salt in a saucepan.

 

*Continue cooking and stirring on medium heat until mixture reaches a softball stage.

 

*Make sure you are stirring constantly so you don't scorch the pan. Now add the butter, vanilla, and pecans

 

*Continue cooking and stirring for about 1 minute or until mixture is thick again

 

*Quickly drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper which should be placed on top of newspaper. Enjoy!!!
