Pralines – An easy, rich-tasting candy classic.


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup Carnation evaporated milk
  • 1 1/2 tbsp butter (Parkay)
  • 2 cups pecan halves


Step 1

Combine sugar and baking soda in a 3 1/2 quart saucepan. Mix well and stir in evaporated milk.

Editor note: For better success, dissolve sugar before turning on heat.

Step 2

Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat, cook and stir to soft ball stage - 234 degrees. Mixture will caramelize slightly.

Step 3

Remove from heat and add butter. Stir in the pecans and beat, stirring fast until thick (2 to 3 minutes).

Step 4

Drop by tablespoon on wax paper. Makes about 30. If candy becomes too thick, add a tablespoon of hot water.
