Coconut pecan pralines are a no bake, easy recipe.

These pralines are addictive and I could eat the entire recipe.  If you like coconut and pecans you will love this candy.  Make this anytime for a delicious treat or make it for any holiday or event.  These coconut pecan pralines make a wonderful gift for a friend or neighbor.  They look great on a buffet table. I have not tried doubling the recipe but see no reason why you could not do so. I keep them refrigerated in a plastic container.  I love having them on hand and grabbing one when I am craving something sweet.  You might also like our recipe for saltine cracker toffee.
