Brandy's Pralines for Dolls and a recipe to make your own Real Pralines to enjoy.

Jayla  Brandy's daughter was so excited to play with the Glassware and Treats set she made.  She played for a bit and then and said, "You know what would make this set even more perfect?  Pralines!!!"  Wow!  Great idea!  She learned a lot reading Cecile and Marie-Grace's books.

 Well, her wish was Brandy's  command.

   "It has been a very long time since I have had a praline, so I had to look a picture up on the internet.  I think they came out cute....AND...Jayla was thrilled." says Brandy
 Brandy used two types of fun foam in tan and brown, cut small circles about the size of a quarters to create the base of your pralines and then snip small rectangles and then glue them to your praline base.
I found a recipe on line to make a Microwave version of Pralines, if you would like to try to make your own this looks like a very fun and easy way to enjoy some time together in the kitchen.
