The caramel cools quickly, making it impossible to roll all the hazelnuts before the candy hardens. Enlist the help of others, or make only half a batch, snacking on any that remain in clumps.
Recipe Summary test
To determine if the mixture has reached the soft-ball stage the old-fashioned way, drop a little into cold water. If it forms a small ball, it's ready. Pralines can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
