Pecan and Chocolate Pralines
2 cups pecan halves plus additional for garnish
1 cup sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 Tbls. unsalted butter
4 oz. semisweet, melted
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment. Stirring gently, bring 2 cups pecans, both sugars, cream, and butter to a boil in a medium heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Attach candy thermometer to side of pan. Boil, occasionally swirling pan, until thermometer registers 236°, 7–8 minutes. Remove from heat; stir vigorously with a wooden spoon until mixture thickens and pecans are suspended in syrup, 2–3 minutes.
Drop candy by heaping teaspoonfuls onto prepared sheets. Let cool completely. Spoon some melted chocolate over; place a pecan half on top. Chill until set, about 30 minutes.
Can be made 1 week ahead. Store airtight in refrigerator. Return to room temperature before serving.
