Praline and chocolate represent two tantalising worlds within the realm of confectionery, each offering an explosion of rich flavours and textures.
Originating from different corners of the world, these delicacies have intertwined over the centuries, creating countless delectable pairings. Praline, with its unique blend of caramelised sugar and nuts, lends a crunchy, buttery depth to the silken luxury of chocolate. Whether it's a smooth Belgian chocolate filled with praline or a southern pecan praline draped in rich, velvety chocolate, this pairing never fails to create an irresistible dance of sweetness.
What is praline
Belgian pralines, also known as Belgian chocolates, are a type of confectionery that originated in Belgium. They are different from the pralines of France and the Southern United States. In the context of Belgian chocolate, a praline is a chocolate shell filled with a soft centre, which is often referred to as praliné.
Traditional Belgian pralines consist of a hardened chocolate shell, usually in the shape of a small, bite-sized piece, that encases a softer, often flavoured filling. The outer shell can be made of any type of chocolate – dark, milk, or white.
The filling, or praliné, is typically a paste made from ground nuts and sugar. Hazelnuts and almonds are the most commonly used nuts, but pistachios and other nuts can also be used. The paste is often combined with other flavours such as coffee, fruit, spices, or liqueurs to create a wide variety of pralines.
