Creole Pralines

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup dark or light brown sugar
  • 1 stick butter (¼ lb)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons karo syrup
  • 4 cups pecan halves

DIRECTIONS

  1. Put all ingredients except the pecans in a 3 quart saucepan and cook for about 20 minutes, after boiling starts, stir occasionally.
  2. Add the pecans and cook the mixture until the liquid forms a soft ball when a little is dropped into cold water.
  3. Stir well and then drop by spoonfuls on wax paper.
  4. Place a few sheets of newspaper beneath the waxed paper. I find it convenient to place a small table near the stove over which I put a few sheets of newspaper and then put the waxed paper over that.
