Praline Pecan Sauce

There are days when everything seems to go as planned.  There are other days when it seems nothing goes as planned.  Today was one of those days.  The kind that nothing seems to go as planned.  That's okay though, at least now that the day is over and it ended with a nice sundae with Praline Pecan Sauce.  :)  Any day that ends with a nice sundae topped with this fantastic Praline Pecan Sauce has got to at least okay.  Yep.  At least okay.

1 1/4 cups chopped pecans
7 Tablespoons butter (divided)
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
3 Tablespoons flour
3/4 cup light corn syrup
2/3 cup evaporated milk

Place chopped pecans in a microwave safe bowl topped with 3 tablespoons butter. Cook for 8 minutes, stirring after each minute. Watch closely so the pecans don't burn. In another microwave safe bowl melt the remaining butter. Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup and flour. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes, until the sugar is melted. Add canned milk and pecans and mix well.  Store in the refrigerator.

  1. lovely sauce great for a breakfast product.We have something very similar to this which we use with waffles. Sauces are one of those things you can easily make yourself.

    1. David, I never would have thought of using it as a breakfast sauce. It sounds divine on waffles - I'm going to have to try it! :)
