Have You Been Wanting to try making Praline Pecans at home?

You have to try making these CrockPot Praline Pecans. They are sweet, crunchy, delicious, and easy to prepare using your slow cooker.

Praline Pecans include pecans, granulated sugar, dark brown sugar, unsalted butter, light corn syrup, egg white, and vanilla.

I love the tastes and smells that penetrate the air when praline pecans are being cooked.  You can find these sweet pecans cooking at most malls, sporting events, Theme Parks, and more.

History of Pralines

Pralines were a popular candy brought to New Orleans from the French. Most importantly, they are a sugary, creamy, pecan candy. However they were originally made using almonds, but almonds in New Orleans were difficult to get. As a result, Cooks began substituting the local nuts from the Louisiana pecan trees. Pralinières would make and sell their sugary treats in the French Quarter for income. Because New Orleans was a port city, Pralines were spread all over the country and we still enjoy them today.

Today, pralines are still made using pecans. See my Praline Recipe.

However, Praline pecans are known as individual pecans covered in the sugary candy coating. Consequently, they are much easier to make than pralines.

Praline Pecans Are Always Calling My Name

These sugary treats seem always to be calling my name.  Never the less, they can get expensive and come in a tiny sack which disappears fast with my big family.  So, I decided to try making a larger batch at home.  I adapted the Praline Pecan recipe from New Orléans Classic Desserts Cookbook by Kit Wohl.  Instead of using my oven, I made with this recipe is I used my slow cooker. These CrockPot Praline Pecans were easy to make and turned out Wonderful!!  I will be making these Pecans again and again.

Mix together the pecans and egg whites before adding the rest of the ingredients.
Add the sugary pecans to the slow cooker.

Praline Pecans – this recipe was adapted from New Orleans Classic Desserts Cookbook by Kit Wohl.   I coated the pecans with a frothy egg white before adding the other ingredients.  Next, I used my slow cooker instead of the oven.

White Chocolate Pretzel Krispies

I have been making this White Chocolate Pretzel Krispies since my kids were little over 15 years ago.  They have always been an easy treat for school parties.

You simply melt a bag of White Chocolate Chips and add Rice Krispies for crunch, crushed pretzels for salt and crunch, and pecans. You drop them by spoonfuls on parchment paper or wax paper.   Store these in an air-tight container and you will have a simple and easy treat for neighbors, teachers, or your kids during the holidays.

Be sure to check out these White Chocolate Candy Clusters made with Pringles.  They are incredibly sweet, salty and crunchy.  Out of all my quick and easy sweet treats or candies, this one is my favorite.  I love the Salty Pringles potato chips with white chocolate.

Yes, Pringles Potato Chips. I have always been a white chocolate fan, but when you mix melted white chocolate with the salty Pringles, peanuts and M & M’s, it is lip-smacking good.  Everyone will be trying to guess what is the crunchy salty thing?  Who can go wrong with M & M’s?  All of these ingredients add up to the perfect combination to make these white chocolate treats.

I just had to try this Graham Cracker Toffee Bars because Al Roker from TODAY SHOW was making such a fuss about it.  They turned out as good as he said.

    Just finished making these beautys. So good! Do I store them sealed tightly, loosely or what?? Thanks so much for the recipe!! Blessings

  2. Hi! I’m going to make these for the sweets table for a baby shower as the mommy to be loves anything praline pecans! Wanted to double the recipe though, should I also double the cooking time??

    • Kari,

      You will love these crock-pot Praline Pecans. I have never doubled this recipe but thought about it many times since they disappear so quickly. They smell amazing too. You might want to do a batch at a time since I do not know what to tell you. The pecans will harden up once cooled. Let me know if you try them.
