Here's my recipe for making Easy Pralines! I hope some of you will find this easier than the traditional praline candy recipe.
Easy To Make Homemade Pralines
- 1 pkg. (4oz.) butterscotch pudding (not instant)
- 1 c. sugar
- 1/2 c. brown sugar
- 1/2 c. evaporated milk
- 1 tbsp. butter
- 1 1/2 c. pecans (broken or halves)
Here's the instructions for throwing it all together:
- Mix dry pudding mix, sugars, evaporated milk and butter together in a heavy 1 1/2 qt. suacepan.
- Cook and stir to a full all over boil. Then boil slowly 3 to 5 minutes, until mixture reaches soft boil stage (*see note below).
- Stir in pecans. Beat until mixture begins to thicken, but still looks shiny.
- Drop tbsp. of mixture quickly onto waxed paper to form 3" pralines. If mixture thickens and starts to lose its shine, add a few drops of evaporated milk.
- Let pralines stand until firm.
To test candy, take pan off heat and drop a tiny bit of the hot mixture into a bowl of cold(not ice) water. If candy does not fall apart when lifted with fingers, it has cooked long enough.
Well, that's it! Told you it was easy! I hope you'll give it a try and enjoy this praline candy recipe as much as I do.
Hi Candy Maker,
Thanks so much for sharing this recipe for Easy Pralines. We always do love "short cuts" to getting our favorite treats without as much fuss.
I'm not sure if I can get butterscotch pudding mix here in Australia, so I'll have to have a good look around the shops. I don't remember seeing that flavor over here.
Oh well, even if I can't make it till I return to the States for a visit, I'm sure some other volunteers will test it out for us and see what they think.
