Calibama Pralines

There's nothing quite as good as a piece of homemade candy!  Enter Pralines.  Historically, pralines are a New Orleans, Louisiana specialty.  But y'all know, my folks are from down Mobile, Alabama...another Gulf town!  So that means, the 'Bama part of me has a claim on pralines.  And then when you add in the Cali part of me (born and raised, baby!), well, you know what's up!  So I started thinking of how to combine these two unbelievable regions into one delicious dessert.  Enter:  Calibama Pralines.  These are so sweet and so decadent, you will want to stop eating them, but you won't be able to.  I apologize right now for that!
So here's where I ended up:
Cali - Walnuts + Bama - Pecans + Coconut flakes - A Little Chef Lorious = Calibama Pralines!
Again, I'm sorry in advance for how many of these you will one sitting!
