Q: Do you know a way to soften praline candy? I just received a dozen from a friend in New Orleans, and they are starting to dry out already. What can I do to salvage them and restore the creamy texture? Sent by Victoria Editor: Oh, dear! Since the problem is mostly that the sugar in the pralines gets hard and crystallized, you might try softening them the way you'd soften hard brown sugar. Place a terracotta sugar saver in the container or something else that's slightly damp, like a few slices of apple or a slice of fresh bread.
