THIS RECIPE WAS GREAT. TWO THINGS I WOULD LIKE TO ADD THOUGH. FIRST OF ALL THIS WAS MY FIRST TIME ATTEMPTING TO MAKE PRALINES SO I MADE NO CLUE JUST HOW MUCH THE WEATHER CAN AFFECT THESE. IF IT IS RAINY OR THERE IS TO MUCH HUMIDITY, THEN MOST LIKELY THEY WILL NOT SET. WELL THIS IS FOR LOUISIANA, IM NOT SURE ABOUT OTHER PLACES. SECOND, I WAS HAVING THE WORST TIME WITH THESE AT FIRST. I DIDNT KNOW HOW LONG TO MICROWAVE THEM FOR TO GET THEM RIGHT. THEN MY MOM GAVE ME THE BEST ADVICE. YOU TAKE A CUP OF ICE WATER; DROP A SMALL AMOUNT OF THE MIX IN THE WATER. IF IT HARDENS UP INTO A BALL, IT IS READY. IF NOT, IT NEEDS TO BE MICROWAVE FOR LONGER. ONCE I GOT IT RIGHT THESE WERE GREAT AND GONE IN A DAY.

This recipe is awesome!!! First of all, this is so easy. I made pralines "the other way"-on the stove with a candy thermometer--never again. Second, the pralines melt in your mouth, are not grainy, and are not too sweet. I did have to perfect the recipe to my microwave, however. I had to microwave for a total of 12 minutes, and I did not stir for the whole three minutes. I also must make my pralines too big b/c the most I ever got out of the recipe was 28. I made this about a dozen times this year for Christmas gifts. It takes me 20 minutes start to finish. Thanks!

I was a little worried about making these as so many people had issues with the microwave times. I have a 1000 watt microwave and cooked them on high for 4 minutes then stirred, and then cooked another 5 minutes. They turned out perfectly! I'm in Florida, and although its not real humid right now in Dec., these still turned out just fine with all the windows open! I think my best Christmas gift will be seeing the look on my mothers face since she has tried had failed so many times attempting to make pralines! Also, I don't know how you could possibly get 3 dozen out of this recipe, I got 1 dozen smaller than New Orleans style pralines.
