praline technique

ChrisKC Dec 9, 2008 11:32 AM

I was thinking to give pralines along with fudge to a few people. I've made a couple of batches (out of this world!) and while the taste & texture are very good (I ate both batches!), they are a pain in the ass to dollop into individual pieces. Can I not pour into one pan, let cool and then cut into pieces, kinda like fudge. I'm not sure if they would actually cut or just crumble. Thoughts?

    Ladle the pralines onto a marble slab or a cookie sheet with waxed paper. I dunno about pouring into one pan--part of the fun of pralines is just the way they are!

      it will be pretty hard to cut.... since it will be so brittle. we usally just break them off in pieces and trim the sharp points (children friendly).. i am thinking maybe you can pour the praline in a few looong strips between a few baking sheets, close to ruler width and break them off to pieces? less crumble, i think. i'm planning doing that. i hope it works.
