Since it’s the holidays and I’m in a giving mood, I’ve decided to give you my very addictive praline recipe.


  • 4 cups of sugar
  • 1  12 – ounce can of evaporated milk
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 12 ounces of pecans halves
  • Candy thermometer


  • Lay out two large sheets of parchment or wax paper and butter both sheets (or you can butter the bottom of a large glass pan – 9 x 14).

  • Combine sugar, salt, butter, milk and vanilla to a large deep pot over medium heat. Stir often!! Cook until temperature reaches 234F (114C). Remove from heat and stir in pecans.

  • Spoon out cookie size drops onto parchment or wax paper (or pour the entire pot into a glass pan and cut into 2″ pieces).
