First I made 4 separate batches. I tried whipping cream, half and half, and margarine and butter. I tried various combinations to see what I liked better. All came out excellent, but I preferred butter with half and half. I am from New Orleans and this recipe is fantastic and just as good as any traditional recipe!! Later I made 5 more batches and this is what happened. The first 2 did not firm up well. I just scooped them back I the bowl and remicrowaved them. They came out great. I then tripled the recipe to make another large batch. I was very careful because I wasn't sure if this batch would set up. I microwaved it about 30 min in all and kept checking and stirring. About 3-4 times in all. I also used the trick from another reviewer and dropped a tad in ice water. When it balled up, I knew it was ready. This was the best batch of all!!! They we're lose enough to allow the praline to spread out like a traditional praline does. Also, on the others, I did not butter the parchment paper and they were fine, but it is definitely easier and comes out nicer if you butter the paper prior. This is a FANTASTIC and EASY recipe!!! I will NEVER make pralines on the stove again!!! Highly recommend!! Thanks so much!!
