I first started making pecan pralines after my family and I went to a friend’s wedding in New Orleans, Louisiana. They had pralines at the wedding, and everyone loved them. After we got back home, I began making the pralines and decided to use the sucanat – because using sucanat helps them be a little healthier – and who does not want a healthy dessert or snack that tastes great? Everyone just loves them! I have taken them to church, to our family get-together, etc. They never stay around for long!
