    A praline is a type of candy made from nuts and sugar syrup, often associated with southern cooking especially in the United States. They may be in whole pieces, or ground and used as a filling in chocolates or other sweets.

  1. Praline

    Praline can refer to confections made from nuts and sugar syrup, whether in whole pieces or a ground powder, or to any chocolate cookie containing the ground powder or nuts. Belgian pralines are different; they consist of a hard chocolate shell with a softer, sometimes liquid, filling. French pralines are a combination of almonds and caramelized sugar. American pralines also contain milk or cream and are therefore softer and creamier, resembling fudge.
