Last minute praline sauce for the 4th!

by Sandy Pollock

One of my most favorite things in the world is to walk down the stairs of my apartment building to check the mail and find a package from my mom! My mom is the care package queen. I never know what will be in a package — sometimes it’s a pair of earrings and super cute headband. Sometimes it’s a crazy cute pair of rain boots that look like cowboy boots (just got these in yesterday!)

Sometimes it’s a big ol’ pile of recipes that she has cut out of newspapers and magazines. Bottom line is my mom is awesome and there is just no getting around that.

In a recent big ol’ pile of recipes she sent, I found an easy recipe for praline sauce that can and should be lovingly spooned over a giant bowl of 4th of July ice cream! It’s easy and super duper yummy. You probably have everything you need in your pantry. Go make it and let me know how you like it! If you like it, I’ll be sure to let mom know 🙂

1 cup light corn syrup

1/2 cup sugar

1/3 cup butter

1 egg beaten

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 cup coarsely chopped pecans


Combine the corn syrup, sugar, butter, and egg in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil for 2 minutes without stirring.

Remove from heat; stir in vanilla and pecans.


Serve warm or at room temperature over ice cream!


ENJOY!
