About National Pralines Day
A praline is a form of confectionery that contains nuts and sugar.
There are three main types:
Belgian pralines, which consist of a chocolate shell with a soft filling. They are traditionally made of different combinations of hazelnut and almonds.
French pralines, a firm combination of almonds and caramelized sugar.
American pralines, a softer, creamier combination of syrup and pecans, hazelnuts or almonds with milk or cream, resembling fudge.
