Here are a few tips to help you make the perfect keto pralines:
1. Use powdered sweetener: Granulated sweeteners don’t dissolve as well as powdered sweeteners, which can result in a grainy texture.
2. Don’t overcook the mixture: If you cook the mixture for too long, it can become hard and difficult to work with.
3. Use a cookie scoop: A cookie scoop can help you make evenly sized pralines.
