Pralines are a confection made from nuts and sugar syrup. In Europe, pralines used local ingredients such as hazelnuts or almonds.
American pralines split from the French; they incorporate milk or cream into the caramelized syrup to produce a softer texture.
And of course, pecans replace the almonds.
American pralines are quintessentially New Orleans: pecans and sugarcane are grown in close proximity.
These pralines come from Southern Candymakers in the New Orleans French Quarter.
