Before starting to cook, lay out a piece of parchment, aluminum foil, or a silpat for the pralines. Set a second spoon nearby in case you need to scrape the candy off the first spoon. Combine all the ingredients in a medium sauce pan, at least 4 qt. Do not use a smaller pan as the syrup will bubble up during cooking. It's also harder to stir in a smaller pan. Cook the syrup over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. When it comes to a boil, start stirring constantly. Let it boil for about 3 min, until the syrup registers 238-240 degrees on a candy thermometer. Remove the pan from heat immediately and keep stirring. Stir, stir, stir! IT will become creamy, cloudy, and start to thicken. When you feel it starting to get grainy, the pralines are ready. You can also hear it if you listen closely; the crystals will make a scraping noise against the side of the pan (if you go too far you won't be able to get out). Drop spoonfuls of the praline syrup onto your waiting parchment. Work quickly, as the syrup starts to set as it gets cool. Let the pralines cool and harden for at least ten min before eating.
