Ingredients

1/2
cup packed brown sugar
1
box (4-serving size) butterscotch-flavored pudding and pie filling mix (not instant)
1
cup granulated sugar
1/2
cup half-and-half
1
tablespoon butter or margarine
1
cup blanched whole almonds, toasted if desired
1/4
cup boiling water

Steps

  • 1 Line cookie sheet with foil. In 2-quart saucepan, stir all ingredients except boiling water with wooden spoon. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until boiling rapidly. Boil and stir 3 minutes. Place boiling water in measuring cup. Remove candy from heat and continue stirring vigorously 4 to 5 minutes or until thick but still shiny.
  • 2 Working quickly, drop praline mixture by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheet, flattening into patty shape with back of wooden spoon if needed. If mixture stiffens too much to drop from a spoon, quickly stir in hot water, 1/4 teaspoon at a time, until smooth. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Store in tightly covered container.
