You’re not going to believe the decadence of our Pecan Praline Dip. It’s the perfect dessert for a crowd, but you might want to double the recipe that already serves 8—we have a feeling they’ll be going back for seconds. This recipe comes together in a flash. With just 10 minutes of active time and 35 minutes total, you might even have time to whip together one of our boozy Praline Coffee. It’s made with praline liqueur, brown sugar, and half-and-half. It’s the perfect accompaniment to our tasty Pecan Praline Dip—or a great alternative for those who tend to skip dessert. When preparing this dip, bring the light brown sugar, heavy cream, and salted butter to a boil. Once it’s removed from the heat you’ll add vanilla extract and salt. Transfer it to a mixing bowl, cover, and let it sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes. While the mixture sits, prepare the whipped cream. You’ll fold the praline sauce into the whipped cream along with chopped toasted pecans. Now, we’ve got a finish that we know you’ll love: Serve with vanilla wafers.

How to Make It
Bring 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar and 1/4 cup each heavy cream and salted butter to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high, stirring constantly. Cook 1 minute. Remove from heat, and stir in 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract and 1/8 tsp. table salt. Transfer to a bowl; cover and cool to room temperature, about 20 minutes. Beat 1 cup heavy cream with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in praline sauce and 3/4 cup chopped toasted pecans just until swirled. Serve with vanilla wafers. Serves 8.
