Expert Tips

  • Praline most commonly refers to almonds or pecans coated with caramelized sugar. This treat is thought to have originated from Louisiana where spices are not an uncommon addition to this sweet, crunchy delight.
  • Don’t get burned! Use a wooden spoon and a heat-resistant rubber scraper. All metal spoons can get very hot while stirring.
