Bocuse’s Pink Pralines (Lyonnaise candied almonds)

2021-11-15

   La version Française se trouve ICI
Pink Pralines (candied almonds or 'pralines roses') are a specialty from Lyon, France. A real treat to be used as candies, or to be used in Praline Tarts. Making Pink Pralines is fun and definitely cheaper.

About this recipe

Here's a very typical recipe from Lyonnais, a city in Central/East France where I lived for many years when I was a student

You may actually find them online, but they can be very expensive

I make them not only because it's cheaper, but also because I find it fun
Pink Pralines

That's a candy that you can actually use as a treat, and these candies can also be used in specialty desserts such as the "Tarte à la praline" or Praline Tart (HERE)
Pink Pralines

Pink Pralines are more than a simple candy in Lyon, they are a real cult !

In the "Halles" (upper end Market), lots of shops offer them, like here, the Maison Victoire

I also recommend to try the Praline Sablés by the Maison Jocteur

Modifications to the original recipe

  • I prefer using a saucepan, and not a skillet as I learned at Bocuse school
  • I also use

    Almond Extract

    , which is not in the original recipe
