Soft Pecan Pralines

Soft Pecan Pralines


1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup pure cane sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons water
1 cup pecan halves

Cooking Instructions

In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the light brown sugar, granulated sugar, heavy cream, butter, and water. Place over a medium-low heat and stir constantly until the sugar mixture reaches the softball stage, 238 to 240 F. Remove from heat and add the pecans. Continue to stir the candy vigorously with a wooden spoon until the candy begins to lose its shine, and the pecans remain suspended in the candy, about 2 minutes. Spoon the pralines out onto a parchment or aluminum foil lined sheet pan and allow to cool completely.
