For me praline falls in the category of recipes that I learnt in my teens in our cooking school. So this praline recipe is what I have been making for many years now and it is a very easy recipe to make praline.

This praline recipe is a 3 ingredient recipe made with butter, sugar and nuts. For the nuts they are coarsely crushed or chopped and added. You can add any chopped nuts like almonds, cashews, pistachios, roasted peanuts, walnuts or pecan.

The praline made with this recipe stores well and remains crispy and crunchy throughout. It does not soften nor becomes moist. You can easily double or triple the ingredients and make a large batch that can be easily refrigerated for a month.
