Praline Sauce Recipe + Printable

Okay, so my handmade gifts list just wouldn’t be the same without this Praline Sauce. Oh my goodness gracious! It is one of those things that you’ll want to keep on hand for any celebration you can think of for the future.

Sweet and buttery, this my praline sauce is a bit darker than my Southern Pralines recipe. It is made a bit differently so that it doesn’t have to be refrigerated; therefore, it keeps well in someone’s pantry or cupboard and makes a wonderful gift during the holidays.

Gifting Ideas

If you are wondering what in the world someone would use Praline Sauce on, I have your answer. Just about anything you can think of!

It makes a delicious topping on everything from ice cream to cakes and stands in so well for waffles or pancakes that your family may request it instead of their regular syrup!

Speaking of which, I think it would be wonderful in a gift basket with the Buttermilk Waffle and Pancake Mix that I shared with you yesterday! They would be all set for a fun, scrumptious and amazing breakfast where you did all the work for them!

But don’t think that’s it. I have a little something, something for tomorrow that you’ll definitely want to stash a jar of this praline sauce aside for yourself to drizzle all over.

Here’s a little hint.


Okay, sorry.

That was a rather humongous hint, wasn’t it?


Praline Sauce Printable

I made a printable that you can easily download and print onto the same labels we used the other day for the Lemon Sugar Scrub. {See, I am trying to keep things as easy as possible for ya!} Anywho, if you’d prefer not to worry with the labels, just print onto a thick paper or cardstock, trim around the outer edge, and use!

They fit perfectly on top of small-mouth jar lids, but you could just as easily use a hole punch and pretty ribbon and tie one around the neck of the gift bottle. Then, on the back you can write who the gift is to, from, and even include some ideas on how to use or the date made.

Here’s the printable for you to download and use.
