1 1/4 cups chopped pecans
7 Tablespoons butter (divided)
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
3 Tablespoons flour
3/4 cup light corn syrup
2/3 cup evaporated milk
Makes 3 cups of sauce.
Place chopped pecans in a microwave dish with 3 Tablespoons of butter. Melt butter and cook with the pecans for 8 – 10 minutes, stirring twice. Watch the pecans closely to not burn them.
In another microwave safe bowl (I use a glass batter bowl because it has a lip for pouring) place remaining butter and heat until melted. Whisk in brown sugar, flour, and light corn syrup until blended. Cook on high 6-8 minutes, stirring twice, until the sugar is dissolved.
Add in 2/3 cup evaporated milk and the pecans, stir well with a plastic or wooden spoon.
Pour into a mason jar (or multiple, depending on how many gifts you’re giving).
Last step: Add a tag and bow and you have made some sweet little gifts! Consider packaging with a cool ice cream scoop (homemade ice cream would be even more delicious if you have an ice cream maker) to make it extra special. Put instructions on the back of the tag to keep sauce refrigerated and to reheat in low heat in the microwave to pour over ice cream.
If eating immediately after the main meal, let it cool down to room temperature before.
YUM! Isn’t this praline sauce recipe so easy? You can add it to your apple pie, bread pudding, or with a small amount of cream. It’s become my favorite way to garnish my desserts!
