Praline Crunch

Praline crunch is the kind of good stuff that you put in a bowl on the table during a football game for guests to snack on and by halfway through the first quarter you are wondering where it all went. “Why didn’t I double it?” is what you’ll be asking yourself, so I’m telling ya right now: double it. Crunchy and just the slightest hint of vanilla. And pecans! I love pecans!

Praline Crunch

This recipe for praline crunch is pretty flexible. If you aren’t a fan of pecans, shelled peanuts also work fine and do cashews. You can also substitute other cereals, or use a mix. Praline crunch is good no matter what you put into it, just make sure you double the recipe!

Note: I used baking powder because, somehow, I was out of baking soda! You can substitute baking soda by using just 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda versus the 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder.

Also try my caramel crunchy Cheetos!
