Texas Pralines

These are always a hit at Christmas so I’m busting them out early this year. I usually make these or Almond Toffee as gifts for friends and teachers. It’s not a good idea to double this batch because you can’t get them all onto the wax paper before they start to crystallize in the pot. You just have to clean up and start over each time. Cleaning the pot immediately, while it’s still hot also saves alot of hassle.
