Eggnog Pralines


Eggnog is one of our favorite holiday drinks and it makes an INCREDIBLE addition to these unique pralines we invented just for the holiday season 🎅🏼🤶🏼🎄🎁


  • 2 cups pecans
  • 1.5 cups white sugar
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup eggnog
  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Generous pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg


Step 1

Lay out some wax paper and either butter the paper or spray some Pam on it.

Step 2

Prepare a shallow dish (large enough to hold the pot) with ice water in it on the counter.

Step 3

Put the ingredients all together in a pot. Bring to a boil together on stovetop with the candy thermometer clipped to the side.

Step 4

After stirring enough to combine, leave the mixture alone and let it climb to about 235 Fahrenheit.

Step 5

Remove and put pot into a shallow ice bath. Keep stirring the mixture in the pot (which is inside the ice bath).

Step 6

The goal is to cool it down enough that it’s about 200 degrees, thick to stir but still liquid with a glossy sheen.

Step 7

Then pour in dollops onto the waxed paper and let cool for 15-20 minutes

Step 8

** You might be able to do this without an ice bath, we found it easier, though. We used an ice pack under my pot because it worked.
