Pecan Praline

Beth Pierce


This scrumptious Southern Pecan Praline Recipe is made easy on the stovetop with six ingredients. They are sweet brown sugar caramel like candy treasures filled with roasted pecans. My friends and family just rant and rave over these candies. They make perfect additions to your holiday candy and cookies trays. I love to include them, Buckeye Balls, Best Butter Cookies, Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies, and Peppermint Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies on my holiday trays.

How to Make Pecan Praline


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread pecans out in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Toast for 7-10 minutes stirring halfway through.
  2. In a heavy pot or Dutch oven over medium heat add brown sugar, heavy cream, butter and corn syrup; stirring frequently. Attach a candy thermometer to the side of the pot. Once the mixture starts to bubble stir constantly; scraping the sides and bottom so nothing sticks or burns. Stir the mixture constantly until the temperature reaches 235 degrees (soft ball stage).
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the pecans and vanilla. Continue stirring just until the mixture begins to lose its glossiness. Then working very quickly drop by rounded tablespoons onto a parchment covered baking sheet. Let sit 20 minutes at room temperature or until set.
