praline definition and meaning

What is "praline"?

Praline is a type of candy that is made from sugar, nuts, and cream. The candy originated in France and was brought to the United States by French settlers in Louisiana. Pralines are typically made by heating sugar and cream together until the mixture caramelizes and thickens. Chopped nuts, such as pecans or almonds, are then stirred into the mixture and dropped onto a sheet of wax paper to cool and harden. The resulting candy has a soft and chewy texture with a sweet, nutty flavor. Pralines can also be flavored with additional ingredients, such as chocolate or vanilla, and are often served as a dessert or given as a gift. They are a popular candy in the Southern United States and are often associated with New Orleans and Cajun cuisine.
