Pralines make a wonderful dessert following Mexican food. They are great for buffets when individually wrapped in colorful tissue paper and tied with jumbo yarn. For holidays and parties, I’ve often tied them to a pinon tree encircling the patio or to a branch of a cedar I used for the center piece.
