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
Combine sugar and baking soda in a 3 1/2 quart saucepan. Mix well and stir in evaporated milk.
Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat, cook and stir to soft ball stage - 234 degrees. Mixture will caramelize slightly.
Remove from heat and add butter. Stir in the pecans and beat, stirring fast until thick (2 to 3 minutes).
Drop by tablespoon on wax paper. Makes about 30. If candy becomes too thick, add a tablespoon of hot water.
