Chocolate Pecan Pralines

Recipe 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


Combine sugars, cream and salt in a large saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, to 228 degrees F on a candy thermometer.

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.

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.

Yield: about 2 dozen
