Pralines

It is widely agreed that pralines were named after César duc de Choiseul comte du Plessis-Praslin, a French diplomat from the early 17th century. However, many feel that his personal chef Clement Lassagne created the praline. Although there are many tales of its creation, there is a playful account to the story. Plessis-Praslin was said to be a ladies man and asked his chef Lassagne to make an irresistible treat for courting his lady friends. The result was a sweet sugary nut treat that was wrapped in a parcel with Plessis-Praslin name on it. Thus, the name praslin was termed. Later the confection was called a praline.

The original French praline was a sweet confection made of almonds and a creamy sugary caramelized coating. Today in France and Belgium, it is a velvety paste of cocoa merged with finely ground nuts and used to fill chocolate bon-bons. In New Orleans, the praline is more like the original version candy but made with pecans.

Which Means

whether made traditionally or with cocoa, pralines make a appealing and brilliant gift. Plus a wonderful assortment of pralines in a gift box will be cherished by all. For a lovely contrast, chocolate gift boxes can be filled with regular pecan pralines and chocolate pecan pralines.
