These Praline Brownies are for those with a major sweet tooth! The Praline Topping is perfection!
I use the word brownie in this recipe lightly.
It’s all about the topping people.
Praline topping…perfectly sweet and soft praline topping.
Fun fact to know and tell: Pralines are one of my favorite candies ever. Possibly equal to peanut butter cups. Maybe slightly higher. Don’t repeat that.
So anyway, a super thick layer of praline on top of brownies might be my cue to die. Because everything’s downhill from here.
Praline Brownies are super easy. I cheated and used a box mix for the brownie. If you have your own super secret brownie recipe you love, totally use that.
My Fudgy Brownie recipe would also work great. (*note that recipe is baked in a 9×13 pan)
Anyhow, I wanted my praline topping a little thicker, so I baked these brownies in an 8×8 pan. Use your own preference on the pan you use. The praline recipe will cover a 9×13 pan for a thinner layer or an 8×8 for a thicker..totally up to you! Don’t stress!
Let your brownies cool. Then make your topping.
In a saucepan heat up heavy cream… brown sugar and butter…
Bring it to a boil.
While it’s heating chop up some pecans or walnuts…whichever you prefer.
Once it’s boiling let it go for one minute and then remove it from the heat.
Stir in some powdered sugar and vanilla…
Whisk it until it’s smooth.
Then mix in those nuts. Let it sit for a few minutes and then pour it all up on those brownies.
Spread it around and then let it set up. It’ll take about 45ish very long minutes.
And then..boom shaka laka…
You can be all ladylike and eat it with a quaint little wooden spoon like I am pretending to do here…
Or you can stuff them down your throat as fast as you can.
