Prep: 15 min - Total: 1 hr
24 NILLA Wafers
1 cup sugar
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2/3 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp. margarine or butter
1 cup PLANTERS Pecans, chopped
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Cover 2 cookie sheets with waxed paper; place 12 wafers
2-inches apart on each sheet.
Heat sugar, brown sugar, cream and water in 3-quart saucepan
on medium heat, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves.
Cook without stirring until temperature reaches 235°F (soft
ball stage). Add margarine; do not stir. Cool mixture to
150°F, about 30 minutes.
Add pecans and vanilla to cooled sugar mixture. With wooden
spoon, beat 2 to 3 minutes until candy begins to thicken,
but is still glossy. Quickly pour 1 tablespoonful praline
mixture over each wafer. (If mixture becomes stiff, stir in
a few drops water.) Cool pralines completely until firm; peel
from waxed paper. Store in airtight container.
