CHOICE CHOCOLATE PECAN PRALINES

CHOICE CHOCOLATE PECAN PRALINES

 

  • 1 cup of cream,
  • 1 cup of sugar cooked to caramel,
  • 2 squares of Bakers Chocolate,
  • 3 cups of pecan nut meats.

Stir the sugar and cream over the fire until the sugar is melted, then let boil to
the soft ball degree, or to 236° F. Add the chocolate, melted or shaved fine,
and beat it in, then pour the mixture onto the cup of sugar cooked to caramel;
let the mixture boil up once, then remove from the fire; add the nut meats and
beat until the mass begins to thicken. When cold enough to hold its shape
drop onto an oil cloth or marble, a teaspoonful in a place, and at once set a
half nut meat on each. Two persons are needed to make these pralines, one to
drop the mixture, the other to decorate with the halves of the nuts. The
mixture becomes smooth and firm almost instantly. Maple or brown sugar
may be used in place of all or a part of the quantity of granulated sugar
designated.
