Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Cover 2 baking sheets with wax paper; place 12 wafers, 2 inches apart, on each prepared baking sheet. Set aside.
  • Combine granulated sugar, brown sugar, cream and water in 3-qt. saucepan; cook on medium heat until sugar is dissolved, stirring constantly. Cook, without stirring, until temperature reaches 235°F (soft ball stage). Add margarine. (Do not stir.) Cool 30 min. or until temperature of sugar mixture is reduced to 150°F.
  • Add pecans and vanilla; beat with wooden spoon 2 to 3 min. until candy begins to thicken but is still glossy. Immediately spoon 1 tablespoonful of the sugar mixture over each wafer. (If mixture becomes stiff, stir in a few drops of water.) Cool completely until firm; peel from wax paper. Store in airtight container at room temperature.

Keeping it Safe

When preparing hot sugar syrups, keep a bowl of ice water nearby to cool off any unexpected burns.

    The praline mixture was very good, but I didnt think the vanilla wafer didnt do anything special. Next time I am going to make the praline mixture and leave the vanilla wafers out.


    The Nilla Wafers are a great twist to the Pralines! Everyone asks me to make them for every occasion. Super easy to make and store easily in airtight container. Fantastic to give as little "thinking of you" gifts. 4 or 5 wrapped in colored cellophane and tied with ribbon is a perfect one person treat! I make them so often, I no longer need to look at the recipe.

    Great! A nice treat without the Nilla wafers also. Absolutely yummy!
