Chocolate pralines are one of the most popular confectionary products, containing generally nuts and sugar, with added cream as a common third ingredient. If you're buying chocolate pralines, you should know there two main types to look out for – French pralines, which have a firm texture and contain almonds and caramelized sugar, and American pralines, which are a bit softer texture, and creamier combination of various flavours, most popular ones being syrups, pecans, hazelnuts, almonds with cream or milk. There is also a third variety of chocolate pralines called Belgian pralines, which have a very soft shell with soft filling, made from different mixes of nuts, sugar and often milk paste. They are an important product of Belgian chocolatiers and have high melting point. They are also called chocolate bonbons and were first introduced by Jean Neuhaus II, in 1912 in Belgium. There are many types and shapes of pralines in Belgium, but confusion may sometime arise as the word praline is often used to describe filled chocolates. The chocolate pralines tradition in the US came after French settlers brought it to Louisiana. Sugar cane and pecans were in high supply in this area and in 19th century the chefs in New Orleans started substituting pecans for almonds while adding cream to make the consistency thicker, and creating chocolate pralines, as they are known around the American south nowadays.
Pralines and cream became quickly a popular ice cream flavour in the US and Canada. There are a lot of chocolatiers especially in Europe specializing in chocolate pralines and they come in hundreds of flavours and shapes.
