Have you ever visited Savannah, New Orleans or Charleston and go into one of those candy shops where they let you sample a piece of praline and it just melts in your mouth and then you just can't help but buy a pound for $16? Well, I have and now I don't have to anymore because I can make these bad boys at home and now you can too! This is a real treat to have. It takes some practice to get down the cooking method, but it is soooo worth it! It also makes a great gift.

If my husband happened to cross paths with a praline during his travels, he would always pick a few up for me as a gift for me... a sweet gesture and a sweet treat indeed! I love these nutty, buttery candies, and they're easier to make than you might think. Give Leah's recipe a try and make some sweet memories of your own. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
