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.

How to Make Pudding Pralines


  • 1Mix all ingredients together in a medium saucepan.

    Cook over med-hi heat, stirring constantly, until boiling.
  • 2When top is covered with small bubbles, reduce the heat and cook 3-5 minutes longer.

    Remove from heat.
  • 3Stir 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.
