Pralines are believed to have been named after a French soldier, diplomat and sugar industrialist by the name of Marshal du Plessis-Praslin whose cook was the accidental inventor of the confection in the mid-1600s. As originally inspired in the 17th century France, early pralines were whole almonds that were caramelized sugar. French settlers brought the recipe with them to Louisiana, where both sugar cane and pecan trees were abundant. Cream was added to thicken the confection, creating what is known throughout the American South as the praline.
