Pecan Pralines

This is one of the easiest candies you can make....

Pecan Pralines (Level 2)

1 cup brown sugar substitute (I use Whey Low Gold)
1 cup sugar substitute (I use Whey Low)
1/2 cup cream
1 cup pecan halves
2 Tablespoons butter

Mix together the sugars and cream in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Using a candy thermometer, cook until the mixture has reached 236 degrees.

Remove the saucepan from the heat a let cool for about 5 minutes.

Add the pecan halves and beat with a wooden spoon until the pecans are fully coated by the candy.

Drop the pralines one tablespoon at a time onto a greased piece of aluminum foil, let them cool.

These can be eaten warm, or cooled completely and stored in an airtight container. They are good crumbled over ice cream, and make excellent gifts...Is Xmas coming?
