Pralines are such a wonderful treat! I especially like making them during the holidays. I saw this recipe on a carton of Borden's Buttermilk (Elsie the Borden Cow was their mascot.) when I was a young teenager. I asked my mother to help me make the Pralines (My first attempt at candy making was when I was 7 years old and used only confectioners sugar and milk -I called it, "Cry Baby Candy." So I figured I needed help on this one. These are easy to make; take few ingredients; and very addicting -Yum-O!

This is not my photo; I will be making them again in a few days and will post one then
