Mrs. McMahon's Pralines


  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4-6 Tbsp. margarine
  • 3 cups chopped pecans
  • pinch salt


Put all ingredients together in large saucepan. Bring to a boil stirring occasionally until a soft ball is formed in cold water or 238 degrees F on candy thermometer. Remove pan from heat and beat by hand for 1-2 minutes, then place pan in sink of cold water and continue stirring until creamy. If candy begins to thicken and seems to get sugary, add a few drops of milk and whip until smooth again. Drop from spoon onto waxed paper and let harden.
