Perfect Pralines

Let the candy making begin!  I have a tradition to make candy and give it away at Christmas.  I think there a certain people (psst! husband) that look forward to this time each year.  My first batch for the  year is Pralines.  Being a southern girl this is a MUST make each year.  My recipe is quick, easy, and most importantly, never fails!  That's right!  So set aside 15 minutes and make your batch.
