The most fantastic, EASY candy you can make... sinfully delicious and habit forming. I have only seen this fail once, and then the disaster was the most marvelous gooey pecan praline ice cream topping.

If you wait and add pecans after sugars have cooked, it will cool the mix too much and it will set up prematurely. I have found that you can add the nuts in the original sugar mix and cook along with the sugars and it comes out just great.

I have used a variation of this recipe, leaving out the corn syrup, using 2 tablespoons butter instead of 1 and untoasted pecan halves. I put in everything all at once & microwave for 13 minutes. Stir until mixture starts to cool & begin dropping. If mixture gets too thick, simply put back in microwave for a minute or so & continue. Put on a pretty Christmas plate for a great teacher gift!

Wow! I've made pralines on the stovetop many times, but have never seen a microwave recipe. I was suspicious...too good to be true? These were the best I've ever made! And they are the most beautiful dark color. Yum! I made as directed, but added a pinch or two of salt, and then about a tsp of vanilla right before adding the (non-toasted) pecans. Also, I put at least a 1/2 cup extra pecans, and would've added a few more, but ran out. That's just personal preference though. Oh yes, and I cooked them for about 19 min rather than just 13, but I ~know~ my microwave is a bit weak. Awesome recipe...thanks!
