These crunchy pralines are made with only 4 ingredients--brown sugar, butter, water, and the traditional pecans. They make a tasty and easy Christmas candy.

  • Servings: 2 dozen

Ingredients:

1 lb (packed) Light Brown Sugar, about 2 ⅓ cups
2 Tbsp Butter
¼ cup Water
2 cups Pecan Pieces

Directions:

Combine the sugar, butter and water in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Continue to stir for 3 to 4 minutes. The mixture will begin to boil. Add the pecans and continue to stir for about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Drop by the spoonful onto wax paper. Let cool. Remove from the paper with a thin knife. Pralines may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature about 2 weeks.
