New Orleans Bacon Pralines

New Orleans bacon pralines are a sweet and salty candy made with lightly sweetened bacon and caramelized sugar pecans.

Confession: Until seeing New Orleans bacon pralines on an episode of 5 Ingredient Fix, I didn’t know what they were. The word ‘praline’ is used in the same context as ‘pecan’, so I figured praline is just a southern word for pecan. Laugh all you want, but really – pecan pie, praline pie? They are the same thing!

Someone actually requested that I make pralines for them. Fortunately, my ears perked up when I heard the word ‘praline’ in the background on TV at work, and I was able to google the recipe. Of course, now I know that pralines are candied nuts of deliciousness (yeah, I went there).

So on to the New Orleans bacon pralines recipe!

Sounds incredible! I just posted about my Bacon Brownies last week and was trying to think of more bacon sweet things I could make, and this sounds just right! Thanks for sharing :)

I LOVE 5 Ingredient Fix, her recipes are so fun! These sound so fun...I'm usually not one to mix sweet and salty but I can imagine that this is an awesome combination!
