Yummy Recipe Monday: Microwave Pralines
Recipe by:Debbie McDonald
"The most fantastic, EASY candy you can make... sinfully delicious and habit forming. I have only seen this fail once, and then the disaster was the most marvelous gooey pecan praline ice cream topping."
1 pound light brown sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 tablespoon butter
2cups chopped toasted pecans
In a deep, microwave-safe bowl, mix together brown sugar, whipping cream, and corn syrup. Microwave on High for 13 minutes.Mix in butter until well blended. Then stir, stir, and stir until mixture begins to cool and get creamy. Stir in chopped nuts. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper
If you wait and add pecans after sugars have cooked, it will cool the mix too much and it will set up prematurely. I have found that you can add the nuts in the original sugar mix and cook along with the sugars and it comes out just great.
According to that comment you have to add the pecans right away or the mixture will become too hard for the pecans.
