Southern Praline Sauce

Today’s post is a recipe for a rich, delicious Southern Praline Sauce that is a perfect accompaniment for ice cream (I  know this for a fact, based on personal experience with butter pecan, peach, and vanilla ice cream *cough, cough).Southern Praline Sauce / The Grateful Girl Cooks!  Delicious sauce to use as topping for ice cream or pound cake.

I might add that this praline sauce is so good, you will be tempted to eat it right out of the jar with a spoon (again…personal experience ☺).

This decadent sauce is also a wonderful little gift when packaged in a jar with a gift tag and a cute ribbon; a homemade gift, made with love, from your kitchen to a friend or colleague.

This Southern Praline Sauce, full of buttery pecans, is the perfect topping for ice cream or pound cake!
As Prepared By:
Recipe type: Sauce
Serves: 3 cups
Ingredients
  • 1¼ cups chopped pecans
  • 7 Tablespoons butter (divided)
  • 1½ cups brown sugar (I used dark brown sugar)
  • 3 Tablespoons flour
  • ¾ cup light corn syrup
  • ⅔ cup evaporated milk
Directions
  1. Place chopped pecans and 3 Tablespoons butter in a saucepan or skillet. Cook over medium heat 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, till toasted nicely. Be sure and keep an eye on the pecans so they don't burn.
  2. In another large saucepan or skillet, melt the remaining butter.
  3. Whisk in the brown sugar, flour and corn syrup until they are well blended. Cook on medium-high for 4-5 minutes stirring often, until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  4. Pour in the evaporated milk and add the pecan mixture. Stir till completely blended. Remove from heat.
  5. Let sauce cool slightly, then pour it into clean jars or containers (Mason jars work great!)
  6. This sauce needs to be kept refrigerated. It should last approximately 3 weeks in the refrigerator once you open it and a bit longer unopened. When you are ready to serve it, heat jar on low temperature approximately 15-20 seconds (microwave temps. vary) in microwave, or until pourable.
  7. Be sure if you give this as a gift (the jars would look great with a pretty ribbon and tag), to include instructions as to keeping it refrigerated, and to reheat slightly in microwave when ready to serve. Enjoy!
