Coconut Cashew Pralines
This homemade candy, which is nice at Christmas, is quick to prepare.
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup half-and-half or light cream
3 tablespoons butter
2 cups lightly salted roasted cashews
1 cup flaked coconut, toasted*
Spread the coconut in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 5 to 8 minutes or until light golden brown, watching carefully and stirring once or twice so the coconut doesnt burn.
A saucepan with a smaller diameter will not allow the proper evaporation needed in candy making.
