Freshly scooped American creamy pralines cooling on a marble slab; European pralines lack the cream
|Place of origin||France|
|Main ingredient(s)||Chocolate, nuts, syrup|
Praline is a confection made from nuts and sugar syrup. They may be in whole pieces or a ground powder. The powder is called "pralin". Belgian pralines are different. They have a hard chocolate shell with a softer, sometimes liquid, filling. French pralines are a combination of almonds and caramelized sugar. American pralines have milk or cream. They are therefore softer and creamier, like fudge.
