Serves: 24
These Bacon Pralines are absolutely irresistible! Tender, melt-in-your-mouth candies studded with crunchy pecans and sweet-and-smoky bacon. The best!
  • 1 & ½ cups white sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup milk (I used 2%)
  • 6 Tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 & ½ cups chopped pecan pieces
  • 1 lb. bacon, cooked until chewy and slightly crisp, then cut into pieces
  1. Line a clean, flat work surface with parchment or wax paper. Set out two spoons.
  2. In a large saucepan, bring the white and brown sugars, milk, butter, vanilla, pecan pieces and bacon pieces to a boil on medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Boil for 3 minutes, stirring the entire time and scraping the edges and bottom of the saucepan.
  3. Once three minutes is up, immediately remove from the heat and continue to stir, stir, stir. Stir until the mixture is slightly cloudy, has thickened, and appears almost creamy.
  4. Using your spoons, spoon little mounds of pralines onto the prepared flat work surface, working quickly as pralines set quite fast. Allow the pralines to set completely, about 30 minutes, before peeling off the paper gently and serving. Pralines are delicate, so be careful with them. Serve immediately, or within 1 day.
