Chalkboard Pecan Pralines

No Photo


  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup Half-and-Half
  • 4 cups pecan halves
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar (packed)
  • 3/4 cup butter


  1. Combine everything in a heavy saucepot and cook over low heat until sugar dissolves. Cook over medium heat until mixture reaches 235 degrees F, brushing the sides every few minutes to make sure no crystals form.
  2. Remove from heat and vigorously beat with a wooden spoon until mixture starts to thicken.
  3. Working quickly, drop tablespoons of mixture onto greased wax paper and let stand until firm.
