What is Praline?

Praline is a type of candy that consists of a type of nuts and sugar. Typically it is made of brown sugar, granulated sugar, heavy cream, butter, and pecans. American Pralines originally came from New Orleans and are most popular in the South, though they can be found all over America.

American Pralines have a creamy, fudgy consistency. They are also typically packed full of chopped or even whole pecans. Though pecans are the most common nut used, almonds and walnuts may also be used as well.

What is Praline

In addition to American Pralines, there are also the Belgian Pralines and French Pralines. Belgian Pralines consist of a  milky hazelnut filling with a chocolate outer shell. French Pralines are the original pralines and consist of a crunchy combination of almonds and caramelized sugar.

Praline-Fudge Tips and Tricks

Fudge should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 1-2 weeks. Layer the fudge with wax paper before placing it in an airtight container. Be sure to store it somewhere cool and dry to avoid it from melting.

You may also store your fudge in the fridge for 2-3 weeks. It should also be stored in an airtight container between layers of wax paper. For best results, let it reach room temperature before eating.

You may also freeze your fudge as well. Fudge can be frozen for anywhere from 2-3 months to even up to a year. It all depends on the type of fudge and how you store it.

Praline-Fudge Tips and Tricks

To freeze fudge, wrap it in wax paper and then wrap it in aluminum foil or plastic wrap. Place the wrapped fudge in an airtight container or Ziploc bag. When you are ready to eat your fudge, allow it to sit at room temperature for 2-3 hours to thaw before serving.

For best results, always cut your fudge before storing it. This will make it much easier to work with and store. Using wax paper when storing will prevent the pieces from sticking together.
