History of National Pralines Day
The creator, reason for creation, the origin of National Praline Day is unknown. Although, praline itself has a rich history to know. In the early 17th century, a French sugar industrialist, Marshal du Plessis-Praslin created this European praline at the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte. The original praline was made with whole almond coated with caramelised sugar. At this time chocolates were not discovered. When chocolates were discovered, the ingredient was added to it and was named as praline. Technically when grounded nuts are added to chocolate, it becomes pralines. Then it reached Belgium, where pralines had a rich chocolate centre that was more liquid than solid.
