Peanut Pralines

Peanut Pralines are so buttery and sweet with a texture that melts in your mouth, just like a good praline should. This southern candy is full of salty peanuts for a sweet and salty treat that can’t be beat.


  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 2/3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups salted cocktail peanuts


  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium saucepan with a heavy bottom, melt butter over medium heat.
  • Add brown sugar, cream, corn syrup, and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Once it comes to a full boil, boil for 1 minute, stirring frequently.

  • Stir in peanuts. Let cool, stirring occasionally, for a few minutes.
