Southern Pralines!

Whether you pronounce them prah-lines or pray-lines, they are southern confectionery favorite. These delicious treats are a favorite among our customers, however we cannot always keep up with them. Since pralines taste better made fresh we only make ours once a week and when they are gone they are gone!

At Sweet Pete's we believe in keeping our confections simple, clean and delicious. The praline is no different. We make ours with fresh, whole ingredients and recommend you do the same. Please see our simple, traditional recipe and feel free to call the shoppe if you have any questions!

1 1/2 cup brown sugar
