Hi Everyone!! Welcome to Sweet Melissa Sunday. This week was Butterscotch Pralines. I've never made pralines before. In fact, any recipe that involves exact temperatures and a candy thermometer I usually avoid at all cost. But I decided to try this one. You can find the recipe on Tessa's blog, The Cooking Chemist.
The recipe actually turned out to be pretty simple...sugar, more sugar, butterscotch chips, and pralines. And the candy thermometer wasn't so scary after all!!
Okay...so I added some chocolate on top!! I don't even know if this is how they are supposed to look. I had pecan pralines once, a long time ago when I was in New Orleans. And I can't remember what they looked like. LOL!! They kinda looked like blobs on my cookie sheet. So I drizzled some melted semi-sweet chocolate chips on top.
These were very good. And very sweet. The kind of sweet that makes my teeth hurt!!
Now I am anxious to see everybody's pralines to see what they are supposed to look like. This will definitely be a candy I seek out the next time I am out and about and near a candy store to compare. My kids liked them, but said they weren't their favorite. I think they would make very elegant gifts around the holidays, all wrapped up in a fancy box. And I loved the bites with bit ol' pecans!
Don't forget to check out all the SMS Bakers to see how their pralines looked this week! Thanks for stopping by. Have a Sweet Sunday!!
