PECAN PRALINES

This recipe makes about 3 to 4 dozen pieces, and they are REALLY good!

PECAN PRALINES

2 cups sugar
2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup butter, softened
3 cups chopped pecans

In a large heavy bottom large Dutch oven, combine sugars and cream over medium heat. Stir constantly until sugar mixture registers 228 degrees F on a candy thermometer. Add butter and pecans, and continue to stir until mixture registers 240 degrees F on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat and beat vigorously with a wooden spoon until mixture just begins to thicken and lose its glossy appearance (3 to 4 minutes). Working quickly, drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto parchment paper. Let cool completely, and store in an airtight container.
ENJOY!
