The French-sounding name of “Praline” conveys that the delicious, nutty confections have a French origin. Credit is given to the duke of Plessis-Praslin (ambassador of King Louis XIII) for inventing the praline in the 17th century.
Pralines now encompass a variety of confections made of sugar and nuts. Depending on the country, different ingredients and nuts may be used. In the U.S., pralines are usually made with pecans and most often associated with New Orleans, but they are also popular in other cities in the South.
Inspired from a family-honored New Orleans recipe, Monin Praline is an accurate flavor replication of the New Orleans praline confection and can be used to impart its wonderful taste into a wide variety of beverages.
