These melt in your mouth Sea Salted Praline Pecan Clusters can be made in a microwave in less than 10 minutes and disappear even faster. Make some for a movie night or just because you need some praline goodness in your life.
A little over a week ago my friend Melissa Sperka from Melissa’s Southern Style Kitchen sent me a recipe for Sea Salted Praline Pecan Clusters. She had been editing old photos and came upon this recipe which was one of my sister’s favorites.
Joan always had a stockpile of pecans in her freezer. She put pecans in a lot of her desserts. My personal favorites are her kitchen sink chocolate chip cookies, caramel pecan sticky buns, and nutty toffee bars. As much as she loved pralines, she never came up with a recipe for them. Maybe it’s because making candy can be tricky with three kids running around the house or maybe it’s because Melissa’s sea salted praline pecan clusters just can’t be beat.
When Melissa came up with a way to make these in a microwave, Joan told her she was evil because these can be made any time – even on a hectic afternoon when the kids are running in three different directions. Joan was right. I had company this weekend and work was crazy. I whipped these up in no time and we were in praline heaven.
You don’t even need a candy thermometer! Melissa’s directions are very straight forward. So if you haven’t short-circuited your computer keyboard drooling over these treats, head on over to Melissa’s blog and get the recipe for sea salted praline pecan clusters so you can make your own batch!
But there’s more! Did I mention that Melissa cooks main courses and appetizers too? I’d love to live on desserts but a girl’s gotta eat something besides chocolate every now and then right? Melissa is my go to source for “real food.”
My three kids all have different tastes but we all love Melissa’s Italian Sausage Spinach and Havarti Crescent Braid and her broccoli cheddar and bacon quiche can’t be beat.
Now here’s the really good news. She’s gathered her recipes into a new cookbook: Melissa’s Southern Cookbook. No hunting down your favorites on her website. Or, if you’ve got glitchy internet like I do, no worrying about whether you can get online when you need a recipe. Just bookmark them and they’re always there for you. I can’t wait to get my copy!
