Easy Keto Pralines

To all my brothers and sisters in keto, I cannot lot the holidays be a source of failure to stick to the plan. For me, cookies and candies are my downfall, so I found a way to make a yummy praline that not only is keto-friendly but also makes a SMALL BATCH. We need to be in control of our portions!

These pralines are pecan forward, with the "candy" part holding the pecans together. You can reduce the amount of pecans in the recipe, but then you will need to let the candy cool a little longer so that when you scoop up the pralines, it holds together a bit better.

It is very easy, requiring only the pan to roast the nuts on and a kettle to make the sauce. Easy clean up as well. The entire batch would make a wonderful gift for a colleague or a friend who is on keto.
