Final Notes for the Caramelized Pralines Recipe
➡️ Caramelized pralines are delicacies invented in France to create refined cakes and desserts. The classic, authentic praline recipe contains only almonds, hazelnuts, or hazelnuts and caramelized sugar. Starting from the authentic version, two new types of pralines are known today – Belgian pralines, which instead of caramelized sugar are made with chocolate, and American pralines, which contain pecans and milk or cream.
➡️ Caramelized pralines are used for two purposes. One is to garnish different types of homemade cakes. In this situation, pralines are chopped manually or with the kitchen robot in pieces of the desired size (see my chocolate cake recipe with pralines and truffles and the orange pumpkin cake recipe).
➡️ The second goal is to prepare a fast and delicious dessert. In this case, immediately after cooling, you need to break larger pieces of praline from the block and serve them simply in this way. Another possibility is to pour caramel directly into various forms or make lollipops.
➡️ The preparation of caramelized pralines does not pose special problems even for those who do not have much experience in making cakes. However, there are two important things to remember: one, do not mix the ingredients while caramelizing the sugar because the mixture becomes watery and two, be very careful when pouring caramel over the hazelnuts because it is very hot and can cause severe burns!
