Mona’s Chocolate Pralines

TRH Mona's Chocolate Pralines

This is the only chocolate my husband will eat. I don’t make them often but when I do he’s a happy guy.

(Pronounced praw-leens) it is a very popular US southern candy. Mainly pralines are a sweet sugary candy but these are the chocolate variety. Easy to make and very tasty.Ingredients:
1 stick butter (8 tablespoons)
1 pound of light brown sugar
1 small can of evaporated milk
2 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
Pinch of salt
6 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup whole pecans

Method:
You will need an 8 cup glass, microwave safe, measuring cup.
You can use a glass bowl but the handle on measuring cup makes it a lot easier because you will be taking it out of microwave a few times to stir.
Combine the butter, brown sugar, salt, and evaporated milk and marshmallows in the measuring cup.
Microwave for 11 minutes, stirring every three minutes.
Remove from microwave and add chocolate chips.
Stir till chips are melted. Add vanilla and pecans. Stir well.
Let mixture sit at room temperature stirring every few minutes.
When mixture begins to thicken around the edge stir and drop by tablespoon onto parchment paper. I
use non stick aluminum foil but may not be available.
