Chocolate Pecan Pralines

Ingredients

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup light cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 squares Hershey's baking chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Combine sugars, cream and salt in a large saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, to 228 degrees F on a candy thermometer.
  2. Remove from heat and add the chocolate, broken into small pieces, the butter and pecans. Return to heat; stirring constantly, cook to soft-ball stage, (234 degrees F). Remove from heat, flavor with vanilla extract, and cool 5 minutes.
  3. Beat 10 to 15 seconds, or until slightly thickened. Quickly drop candy by large spoonsful onto greased plates (or wax paper). If mixture becomes too thick to drop, stir in a tablespoonful of hot water.
