Damp, humid weather may cause the pralines to remain sticky. If that happens, leave them uncovered and they should dry out after overnight - if they aren't eaten first!
1 pound light brown sugar
½ cup 2% evaporated milk
2 tablespoons sunflower oil
½ cup roasted sunflower kernels
2/3 cup dried cranberries
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cover a flat surface with an 18-inch sheet of waxed or parchment paper.
In a medium saucepan mix together brown sugar, milk, and oil. Stir over medium heat until mixture reaches a full boil. Boil for 3 minutes without stirring. Immediately remove from heat and add sunflower kernels, cranberries, and vanilla. Stir until mixture starts to thicken and cool- about 5-6 minutes. Using a teaspoon, quickly drop pralines onto waxed paper to cool.
