Another great recipe for your candy Gift Boxes!!
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups packed light brown sugar
1 cup of evaporated milk
1 stick of butter(better to have it soft)
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
2 ½ cups of chopped pecans
Pinch of salt
Place the two sugars, milk and salt into a heavy bottomed saucepan and bring to a rolling boil. The mixture must be in a soft ball state and that takes about 4 minutes of boiling, stirring occasionally.
Lay out wax paper on your counter top.
After the 4 minutes of boiling, add the vanilla and butter and remove from the heat, then add the pecans and beat vigorously until the mixture becomes thick.
Quickly drop by spoonfuls onto the wax paper. This mixture will harden quickly, so you must work quickly
Let the pralines cool and set. Makes about 24 pralines. ENJOY!!!!!
