Chocolate Drizzled Brown Butter Pralines

6 oz Butter
15 oz Brown Sugar
14 oz Granulated Sugar
11 oz Light Corn Syrup
16 oz Chopped Pecans
8 oz Water
2 tbsp Vanilla Extract
6 oz Peter’s Broken Orinoco™ Chocolate Liquor
  1. Line a large tray with nonstick parchment paper.
  2. Brown the butter over medium heat until it is light amber in color and brown solids have separated to the bottom; remove from heat so it does not burn. Set aside.
  3. In a pan or kettle combine sugars, corn syrup, water and pecans. Cook over medium heat to 242⁰F, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in browned butter and vanilla. Let stand for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Vigorously stir the mixture until it loses its gloss and begins to thicken; approximately 5-10 minutes. The sugar will begin to crystallize during stirring and cooling. Once this occurs and the mixture takes on a dull appearance and starts to thicken, immediately portion onto the parchment lined tray with a #40 scoop. Work quickly before the mixture completely crystallizes.
  5. Allow to cool at room temperature before packaging.
  6. Drizzle melted Peter’s Broken Orinoco™ Chocolate Liquor diagonally over the top.
