Praline Sauce


From EatingWell:  September/October 1995

This rich pecan topping is a saucy version of the traditional Louisiana confection. Add a splash of bourbon if you like. Serve over your favorite frozen yogurt or dip in banana slices.

1 cup | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes



  1. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add pecans and stir until the nuts are lightly toasted and fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat; stir in brown sugar.
  2. Stir milk, cornstarch and salt together in a small cup; whisk into the brown sugar mixture. Return to the heat and whisk until the sauce is simmering and thick, about 1 minute. Serve warm over frozen yogurt.
