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.

  • 1 box
    butterscotch pudding or chocolate pudding (cook and serve kind- not instant)
  • 1 c
  • 1/2 c
    light brown sugar, packed

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.
  4. ****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.
