somethingblue2u - you can't just go and say "chocolate raspberry cheesecake cupcakes" and not give us a recipe!

Renee - Just made the Praline Pecans. Only had a cup of pecans so I did 1/3 the recipe and heated everything in the microwave. Heated one minute...stirred and heated one more minute until it was a thicker consistency and added the pecans. They are cooling right now but they smell so good. I can't wait to try them!

Thanks again!

Mine stayed a little sticky, maybe I did not cook them long enough, but I sprinkled a packet of splenda and cinnamon in the container and tossed it around. Seems fine now. There are quite tasty!

When I spread these out to dry they were indeed sticky for a while. I think it was becuase my kitchen was warm from doing a good bit of baking. However, by the next morning...I did have some left by the next morning...they were dry and not sticky at all. I put them in a tin with a lid and I'm seeing this as a holiday gift for my low carbing friends. By the way, I didn't have any pecans so I made them with walnut halves. Not only did they taste good but they looked pretty as well. This is a keeper.

Oh yeah, for the holidays it would be perfect to make these with a delux nut mix. Hope I remember it by then! LOL

I was thinking about add some dark choc to the milk while it was heating up and leaving out the cinnamon. I will letcha know if I do. I am hiding the others for now or I will eat the whole batch!

These are very good..I used brown diabetisweet instead of splenda and they are scrumptious! They are a bit tacky but that makes them even more yummy!

Now for the chocolate version...

Perhaps adding some cream of tartar would help with the stickyness. It is required for making the coating for candy apples hard.

I was hesitant about the liquid splenda but I think the QP would be fine.

I made these and used the QP and it worked fine.....but...they are still a little sticky. I will try the cream of tarter next time too.

How do you all store these? YES...I did have some left. I'm wondering if they need to be put in the fridge. They seem a bit "moist" and I'm afraid they will mold rather quickly. Any thoughts on this???

Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I refrigerated mine since they were still tacky. I am gonna try to cook them long after the liquid is gone next time to see if that reduces the moisture.

I make some quick pecans with a similar method using 1/4 cup monin caramel syrup, cinnamon, splenda quick pack then once the pecans are coated on the stove top I let them roast in a 325 oven for about 30 mins. It dries them very nice and gives them a nice sweet crunch.
