This is one of our family's favorite holiday season snacks--
Pecan Praline Crunch
Stir together 8 cups Chex cereal (I use corn, wheat, and rice)
and 2 cups halved pecans in a 9 x 13 inch baking pan.
(Sometimes I also add small pretzels, peanuts, and almonds to the mix.)
Melt 1/4 cup butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar,
1/2 teaspoon baking soda, and
1/2 cup Southern Praline Mix.
Heat until boiling; gently cook for 2 minutes.
Pour over cereal and nuts.
Stir to coat well.
Bake at 250 degrees for one hour.
Stir mixture once during baking.
Spread onto cookie sheet to cool.
Southern Praline Mix is a flavorful liquid from the Old South,
made and distributed by
The Savannah Cinnamon Company
of Savannah, Georgia.
One of our nearby speciality stores
has carried the various bottles of flavoring
for quite a few years--
raspberry, blueberry, blackberry, and so many more.
But the Southern Praline flavoring is our favorite!
It goes GREAT with the Missouri pecans.
The fragrance in your home is just plain yummy
when this is baking!
Watch for these delicious flavorings
in a speciality store near you!
With each bottle, the company includes
a really great little recipe book
to make speciality drinks, snacks, desserts,
sauces, and so much more.
An update since Leslie left her comment:
Check out their website and click the"Where to Buy" tab --
You'll notice that they've updated their labels
since I bought some bottles last year.
Same great flavors though!
Wishing you a sweet & yummy Christmas season!
