French for Almond Baskets?

I know it's called Pralines here but I'm looking for the real word in french.
I know how to say it but the spelling is way off.

Gataiche? Not sure..
If you have any kind of idea please reply.

    1. Tuiles aux amandes, certainly, or maybe tuiles de nougatine or panier de nougatine, depending on the shape and the recipe.
      You would not be thinking of "ganache" by any chance? This is a type of chocolate used in the confection of Belgian Pralines (which are in fact chocolate bonbons, more like chocolate truffles).

      1. re: monchique

        To add to monochique's comments the Ganache is the softish filling in the centre of the chocolates.
