With the aid of that miraculous culinary invention, the microwave, it only takes 10 minutes of prep time to make this delicious treat, and it's practically fool-proof.
Let's get started...
Step 1: Materials
1 cup raw pralines
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
The nuts, even if you choose to substitute peanuts, walnuts, cashews, almonds, whatever, MUST BE RAW! They will cook in the sugar mixture, and if you use nuts that have already been roasted, they will burn, and nobody wants that.
Tools and Cookware:
Parchment Paper or Silicone Liner
Measuring Cup and Spoons
I know that microwave oven powers tend to vary by model, but use your best judgement; some pointers will be given along the way.
Step 2: Sugar Syrup Base
Pour the sugar, nuts, and corn syrup into your microwave-safe bowl and mix with your spatula, just combining the ingredients until you haven't got little banks of dry, white sugar throughout the mixture.
Pop it in the microwave for 3-4 minutes, depending on the strength of your microwave.
