- Don’t make candies on rainy days. High humidity does not allow the candy to harden. The candy might still taste good but it will surely be sticky. Sticky candies are not that fun to eat, right?
- Use cooking vessels which are heavy and of good quality. Cheap pots don’t heat evenly which will often result in an inconsistent final product. I recommend Copper bottom pots, for they are particularly good.
- Cook candy at an exact and appropriate heat. Remember, if you are stirring the praline mixture, keep the temperature high. Once the candy starts to bubble, reduce the heat to medium. Let it cook a bit, but you still need to stir it frequently.
- Use a candy thermometer as it will help distinguish whether or not the candy is ready to take off the heat.
