This recipe produced an extremely creamy praline with subtle flavor. The problem for me (and apparently for the previous reviewer)is the amount of liquid--I cut it down by about 3 tablespoons or so. I would recommend letting the mixture rest for about 1 minute after the second zap in the microwave. Then, you have to beat it like crazy until it starts to go opaque--spoon out some and see if it looks like the pecans are starting to stick together. THEN you are ready to drop them--work fast because once it starts to set up, your time is running out. This recipe is certainly worth a try--the texture is heavenly. If the pralines don't come out, you have some lovely ice cream topping.

This was a terrible recipe. I tried twice, was extremely careful with the measurments and still ended up with sticky pecan soup.

Ended up with the Sticky Pecan soup..disappointing. Cooked another 4 minutes(3rd go round), hoping they will set up

This really turned out well. You really do need a 1000 watt microwave though. I plan on making these again soon!

I too had a lot of trouble with this recipe. I would strongly urge not trying it. The praline sauce was near the consistancy of water, even after sitting. What a shame with the price of pecans these days.

This is a great ice cream topper. Nothing more.

Be very very careful with this recipe. I have a 1000 watt microwave, and I still burned the mixture well before the cook time was up. It smoked so badly my house smelled for 2 days.
