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).
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.

- 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
- 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.
- In another large saucepan or skillet, melt the remaining butter.
- 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.
- Pour in the evaporated milk and add the pecan mixture. Stir till completely blended. Remove from heat.
- Let sauce cool slightly, then pour it into clean jars or containers (Mason jars work great!)
- 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.
- 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!
