  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered erythritol
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Spread the chopped pecans evenly on the baking sheet and toast them in the oven for about 5-7 minutes, until fragrant and lightly browned. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  3. In a medium-sized saucepan, melt the unsalted butter over medium heat. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until the butter starts to brown and has a nutty aroma, about 3-5 minutes.
  4. Add the heavy cream, powdered erythritol, vanilla extract, and salt to the browned butter and stir to combine.
  5. Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens and reaches a temperature of 240°F (115°C) on a candy thermometer.
  6. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the toasted pecans.
  7. Spoon the mixture onto the parchment paper in small rounds, making sure to leave enough space between them as they will spread out a bit as they cool.
  8. Let the pralines cool and set at room temperature for about 30 minutes, then transfer them to the fridge or freezer to finish setting.
  9. Once fully set, the pralines can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
