What is a praline?
A praline is a confection made with pecan nuts in the Southern United States. It originated in France where it was made with almonds but that changed when the French got to the New World and the most available nut was the pecan. It is also known as pecan candy.
Pralines take on quite a few shapes and sizes and are generally, sugary, creamy, or chewy. MiMi’s pralines are rich and creamy.
How can pralines be served?
Typically the praline is served by itself as dessert or as a sweet snack. However, pralines may be ground up or crumbled and added to Ice Cream or any number of dessert recipes.
Are there sugar free pralines?
There are sugar free pralines out there but we do not sell them. Sugar is a main ingredient in pralines and using a sugar substitute just does not work as well.
