Pecan Pralines

Pecan Pralines

Pralines were originally created in France by coating almonds in caramelized sugar. The praline got its name from French soldier and sugar industrialist, Marshal du Plessis-Praslin, as it was his cook who invented it.

 

The recipe evolved when French settlers brought the recipe to Louisiana where chefs in New Orleans eventually substituted pecans for almonds and added cream.

 

2oz bags of Pecan Pralines are a great way to sweeten your day. Eat it by itself, add it to coffee, or try it with ice cream!
