The other week in culinary school...
wait, have I mentioned that I'm in culinary school?
Maybe so. Thats me on the left.

Anyway, the other week we made pralines.  I had never made these
before, and I was surprised at how easy they are.
Just a little chemistry, and viola!  Candy!

The trick is to obtain "softball stage", I'm not even
sure what that means, but it is 242 degrees.
Using my brand new candy thermometer, I achieved this.

They were soft, chewy and delicious.

Father Willy Wonka-ed up some dessert for the flock!
