Coconut Pecan Pralines

Looks kinda like the icing on the German Chocolate cake I just made, doesn't it? Well I used my leftover pecans, coconut and evaporated milk in this recipe and it turned out great! I just put it all together with a few other simple ingredients and there we have it, a quick & easy praline! It took no time at all (except for the hard part, waiting for them to harden on the wax paper!)

Here's the recipe, enjoy!
(I got it from, I just added the coconut)

Coconut Pecan Pralines

Yields about 3 dozen


2 ½ cups sugar
½ cup evaporated milk
½ cup light corn syrup
½ cup butter or margarine

2-2 ½ cups chopped pecans
2 ½ cups grated coconut


1. Mix all ingredients except coconut, vanilla & pecans in large saucepan.
2. Bring to a rolling boil & boil for 3 minutes.
3. Remove from heat & add coconut, vanilla & nuts.
4. Stir by hand 3-4 minutes.
5. Drop by spoonful onto waxed paper and let harden.

Store pralines in an airtight container.
