Homemade Praline Sauce

This a a yummy sauce that can be made in the microwave!

Praline Ice Cream Sauce

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

Makes 3 cups of sauce.

Place chopped pecans in a microwave dish with 3 Tablespoons butter. Cook for 8 – 10 minutes, stirring twice. Watch the pecans closely to not burn them.


In another microwave safe bowl (I use a glass batter bowl because it has a lip for pouring) place remaining butter and heat until melted.  Whisk in brown sugar, flour, and light corn syrup until blended.  Cook on high 6-8 minutes, stirring twice, until the sugar is dissolved.


Add in 2/3 cup evaporated milk and the pecans, stir well.


Pour into jars.


Add a tag and bow and  you have made some sweet little gifts! Consider packaging with a cool ice cream scoop to make it extra special. Put  instructions on the back of the tag to keep sauce refrigerated and to reheat slightly in microwave to pour over ice cream.

This sauce because of the high sugar content should last safely in the refrigerator for 3 months.



We have some fun colored tags and bakery twine perfect for wrapping your homemade gifts!

I like this as a gift idea. I made pralines for the last two Christmases and they were a hit! I may try this recipe this year as well!

This would also be a great apple dip for a cool Fall evening.
