You can learn how to make pralines at home with this easy praline recipe. With only six ingredients, you can cook up a batch in about 15 minutes even if you don't have a candy thermometer. But you do have to let them cool and set up for 20 minutes before you enjoy them.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Resting Time 20 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp. cinnamon powder
- 1 tbsp. butter
- 1 tbsp. milk
- ½ tbsp. maple syrup
- 1 cup pecans
- Candy thermometer (optional, make sure to use a thermometer with high accuracy.)
- Non-stick tray or mat
- Small saucepan
Pour the brown sugar, cinnamon, butter and milk in a small pot.
Add the maple syrup.
Bring to a boil, starting with low temperature until it slowly heats. You can use a thermometer for more precision. They should be ready when it heats to 230°F. If you don’t have a thermometer, just wait about 7 minutes or until it has a golden tone.
Turn heat off. Add the pecans to the pot and mix well before it hardens.
Place the pecans and praline mixture on a non-stick tray or surface. Let them stand about 20 minutes, until firm.
Break them into pieces and serve.
