This recipe is from Sue Miller, from the Amish-Country Cookbook, Vol. III. It was super easy, and my family loved the original vanilla flavor. Then I tried more flavors like butter rum; toffee; and maple. These were perfect for the Christmas holidays!! I gave them as gifts and everyone said they were delicious and wanted more!!

How to Make Super Easy Amish Praline Pecan Crunch


  1. Combine corn syrup, brown sugar and butter in microwave save bowl. Microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes. Stir and microwave another 1/2 to 1 1/2 minutes (I did 1/2 only in new microwave) or until boiling.
  2. Add vanilla (or other flavor) and baking soda and stir thoroughly. It will begin to foam. Pour mixture over pecans. Stir until coated evenly.
  3. Spread on baking sheet lined with silpat or wax paper and bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour. Stir every 20 minutes. Cool before storing in container. Pecans will stick together but easily break apart into crunch size pieces.
