I agree with Uncle Bob about trying them with pecans. The best I've ever had in my life were made with buttermilk and pecans - sooooooo good.

listen up fine folks of DC. I have pecans, in the freezer by the plenty, but the love of my life doesn't like pecans, I do, he doesn't. Since this little body is trying hard to retain it's new shape, I make them for him and friends like the 2 on here that are getting these in 2 days from now. I must admit though, the buttermilk and nuts sounds wonderful. Can I do that one with the macadamia's I have in the freezer, I'll chop 'em up first though, they're big ole suckers.........

Ooooohhh. I have a pint jar of hickory nuts that my sweet Uncle Hib picked out for me. I have been saving them in the freezer for a special recipe, and I think hickory pralines would be wonderful.

I'm sitting here waiting for the sugar rush to kick in! If I can show ANY self-control my son and hubby will be able to taste them too! It's not lookin' so good though!

- THANK YOU! I've never been so surprised!!!

bouncin bouncin bouncin.............you're a bouncin machine..................
ahahahh
I am thrilled you liked them, to me, I like the one with the cayenne/sesame too. I did a praline that didn't turn out over the holiday but it made the best ever caramels. So I pulled/twisted it, then formed into little logs and wrapped. That flavor, goof as it was,turned out to be best seller, or a best liked I mean.

DH took his bunch of goodies to work today. He had meetings all day long and didn't know when he should take in the box of treats or if, all being NASA guys, they're a little stiff. Anyway, he relented and took it in after the break around 9:30 and just sat it in the middle of the conference table. Another break, to the lu he went, back to the meeting place. No one there yet, so he grabbed what was left [other half of the box] and headed it to a central walkway there at work, where many would see and grab. He got phone calls asking if there was more, who made this stuff, and was told people were coming from other buildings as they'd heard they 'should'. In record time=all gone. One man asked if it contains peanuts, ya think? He said yes...the man dropped his head, got out his eppy and walked away. Came back to husband and said, "I'm glad I asked as I'm allergic, but you know what? I don't care and I'm glad I carry that pen." Funny thing is usually when I make him stuff to take to work, I scotch tape the recipe right on the container and this morning at 4:00am couldn't muster doing that. Next time, I will............
