I am not sure when I aquired this recipe, but I know that I have been making it a long time. I like to take this to family gatherings - I never take any back home.

Ingredients For pudding pralines

How To Make pudding pralines

  • 1
    Mix all ingredients together in a medium saucepan. Cook over med-hi heat, stirring constantly, until boiling.
  • 2
    When top is covered with small bubbles, reduce the heat and cook 3-5 minutes longer. Remove from heat.
  • 3
    Stir to cool candy down. (I will usually put bottom of pan in cold water in sink to speed the cooling process) Top of mixture should still be a bit shiney. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper. Let cool completely, it will harden as it cools.

    ****NOTE**** If mixture cools too much before dropping onto wax paper, it may begin to harden in the pan. ** Must work fast if this happens ** If mixture is not cool enough when dropped onto wax paper, it will run and may not harden at all. ** Use for ice cream topping if this happens ** I know this sounds like a picky process. I usually stir mine until the shine just starts to go...then I work quickly.
