Big Texas Welcome to today’s Guest Poster – Cindy, from Skip To My Lou
Hi, I’m Cindy from Skip to my Lou! Please come visit me for crafty tutorials, handmade gift ideas, teacher appreciation ideas, sewing patterns and recipes! This super simple praline sauce is the perfect topping for ice cream and makes a yummy gift! Since this sauce is made in the microwave you will have your homemade gifts done in no time!
Southern Praline Sauce
1 1/4 cups chopped pecans 7 Tablespoons butter (divided) 1 1/2 cups brown sugar 3 Tablespoons flour 3/4 cup light corn syrup 2/3 cup evaporated milk Makes 3 cups of sauce. Place chopped pecans in a microwave dish with 3 Tablespoons butter. Cook for 8 – 10 minutes, stirring twice. Watch the pecans closely to not burn them.
In another microwave safe bowl (I use a glass batter bowl because it has a lip for pouring) place remaining butter and heat until melted. Whisk in brown sugar, flour, and light corn syrup until blended. Cook on high 6-8 minutes, stirring twice, until the sugar is dissolved.
Add in 2/3 cup evaporated milk and the pecans, stir well.
Pour into jars.
Add a tag and bow and you have made some sweet little gifts! Consider packaging with a cool ice cream scoop to make it extra special. Put instructions on the back of the tag to keep sauce refrigerated and to reheat slightly in microwave to pour over ice cream.
