Yummy, then the head ache.

I made my world famous Christmas Pralines..
  • 2 cups brown sugar
    [/*:m:9468mhm0]
  • 1 cup white sugar
    [/*:m:9468mhm0]
  • 1 cup water
    [/*:m:9468mhm0]
  • 1 cup cream
    [/*:m:9468mhm0]
  • 3 cups pecans
    [/*:m:9468mhm0]
  • 1 tablespoon Cayenne pepper[/*:m:9468mhm0]
Boil everything except the pecans to about 238 degrees.
Then keep stirring and remove from burner.
Add the pecans and coat evenly.
Scoop out spoonfuls onto a buttered cookie sheet and let cool.
Then eat all of them and get a sugar rush!!! Yum!!!

They look good SS but they don't look authentic. Lookin at the recipe you used too many pecans. They should have way more candy/suger & less pecans. Yours look like "Pecan Clusters" A sweet & yummy cajun candy

There are also 2 types of pralines, chewy & sugar

The Cayenne isn't too spicy when added to that much sugar. I can't really explain the taste.. Make a batch and taste them.. You'll love them..
