How to make Southern Creamy Pralines

Step 1: In a very large pan, combine the sugar, buttermilk, corn syrup, and salt. Bring to a rolling boil.

Step 2: Pour in the soda and stir. It will foam considerably, it’s normal so don’t worry.

Step 3: Cook until a soft-ball is formed when dropped in cold water. You can use a candy thermometer, too. When it reads 235 degrees F the syrup is at a soft-ball stage.

Step 4: Remove the pan from the heat. Mix in the vanilla and beat until the color changes and the mixture thickened.

Step 5: Add in the pecans and stir.

Step 6: Spoon or scoop the mixture and drop on a well-greased non-stick cookie sheet with foil or wax paper. Make sure to this step fast before the candy hardened.
