Recipe by  

"I created this recipe to mimic a praline I swiped from my brother. This is a not-too-grainy, not-too-creamy praline with a hint of orange flavor."

Directions

  1. Line 12 muffin cups with square sheets of waxed paper.
  2. Heat white sugar, brown sugar, evaporated milk, and frozen orange juice concentrate together in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over low heat; cook and stir until sugar dissolves, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir vanilla extract into the sugar mixture. Fold pecan pieces through the mixture. Cook without stirring until the mixture reaches a temperature of 235 degrees F (113 degrees C), 5 to 10 minutes; remove from heat immediately.
  3. Stir candy mixture until it begins to turn opaque and stiff but can still be spooned easily; spoon into prepared muffin cups.
  4. Cool pralines completely before serving.
