Candymaking Videos

Making a traditional Savannah praline is about more than just the ingredients that go into them. River Street Sweets® knows 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!

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 before whole pecans are poured in. They receive a gentle yet thorough mix into glaze until the temperature reaches 280° Fahrenheit. The glazed pecans are then spread across a large, marble table and separated by hand before cooling.

There aren't many things that remain the same as. time goes on, 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!

Our caramel is handmade from scratch and left to cook up in our water kettles until it becomes a beautiful golden color- this family recipe is used for tons of treats, including our best-selling Bear Claws®, our hand-dipped caramel apples, and even inside the fan-favorite Southern Caramel Layer Cake
