World Famous Pralines®
How it's made


Making a traditional Savannah praline is about more than just the ingredients that go into them. River Street Sweets know that dedication to a quality product and a love of sweet treats is what makes our pralines special.

As a family owned business, we take pride knowing that everything from our original World Famous Pralines® to our chocolate bear claws are made only in small batches to ensure they are perfect every time. We grew up on delicious homemade Savannah Pralines, and we want you to enjoy them too.

Glazed Pecans
How it's made


Our glazed pecans are handmade in small batches by our exceptionally trained candy artisans. The glaze mixture is heated in a copper kettle to bring out the delicately sweet and lightly salted flavor.

Then the whole pecans are poured in where they are mixed gently yet thoroughly with the glaze until it reaches a termperature of 280° Fahrenheit. The glazed pecans are spread across a large, marble table and separated by hand.

Peanut Brittle
How it's made


There aren't many things that remain the same, but our old fashioned candy making methods still haven't changed a bit. We stir our brittle slowly in a huge copper kettle and then pour it on thick marble tables to be hand stretched and cooled. Our family recipes are guaranteed to be the most buttery, crunchiest treats you've ever tried.

Caramel
How it's made


Our glazed pecans are handmade in small batches by our exceptionally trained candy artisans. The glaze mixture is heated in a copper kettle to bring out the delicately sweet and lightly salted flavor.

Then the whole pecans are poured in where they are mixed gently yet thoroughly with the glaze until it reaches a termperature of 280° Fahrenheit. The glazed pecans are spread across a large, marble table and separated by hand.
