So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Pecan Praline Sundae


  2. Gather your ingredients.
  3. Add the brown sugar, salt cream, butter and brandy (if using) to a saucepan.
  4. Set the burner to medium low, and bring the mixture up to a simmer.
  5. Chef’s Tip: During the heating process, continue to stir the mixture.
  6. Cook until the mixture thickens, about 4 to 6 minutes.
  7. Chef’s Note: We are making a sauce, not praline candy. If you overcook the mixture, when it cools it will harden into a thick mass, and I hate it when that happens.
  8. Take off the heat, and stir in the vanilla.
  9. Add the pecans and allow the sauce to cool down until just slightly warm.
  10. Chef’s Note: The sauce, is best when it’s first made, and will turn a bit grainy if it’s reheated. That’s not the worst thing in the world; however, you should make it just before serving.
  12. Place about 1/2-inch of the mixture into a Sunday glass.
  13. Add a nice scoop of ice cream
  14. Cover with a bit more of the sauce.
  15. Add another scoop of ice cream.
  16. Cover with more sauce.
  17. Top with whipped cream, and maybe a cherry. Enjoy.
  18. Keep the faith and keep cooking.
