Who doesn’t love Mexican Candy, y’all!! Coming from a Hispanic background and marrying into a Hispanic family, I’ve had the pleasure to eat some really delicious sweets that are super easy to make and quite decadent! This Mexican candy has pecans in it and it’s delicious!
There are a few versions of Mexican Candy but today I’m bringing you a very basic one that is kinda like a praline for fudge, but I’ve always know it as Mexican candy. Whatever you wanna call it, it’s delicious. It takes just a few minutes to make and a couple of minutes before they’re ready to eat. It definitely isn’t something I’d make often because it’s all sugar but for an occasional treat or during the holidays, it would be perfect!
If you didn’t already know, from the numerous Fisher Nuts recipes I’ve shared, we love our nuts. Fisher Nuts has always been my brand of choice for many reasons but they are the only brand without preservatives. Not only do they have quality product, they support causes that are close to my heart. Like last year, I’ll be helping at our local food bank in Abilene, TX on November 18th, where Fisher Nuts, again, will be making a generous donation as part of the Fisher Shares and Cares Volunteer day. This will be held in San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, Amarillo, and Abilene! I’m so very proud to partnered with them!
If you have your own version of Mexican candy, I’d love to hear it!
P.S. If you’re looking for an organizer for your wax paper, foil, and plastic wrap (and they cut perfect every time!), check out the WrapMaster – It’s my favorite! It’s a godsend for plastic wrap and I’ve had mine for many years! The ramekins are from Pioneer Woman’s line. They’re just lovely huh!
- 1 cup of white sugar
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- 1 cup of Fisher Nuts Pecans (whole or pieces)
- 7 Tablespoons milk
- Wax Paper
- Cook sugar & milk ingredients in saucepan until you a small ball forms in a glass of water. Meaning, drop just a tiny bit into a glass of water and if it forms into a solid, then it's ready.
- Mix in pecans.
