Pralines or truffles are a crutial part of Christmas. Now that it's almost Christmas pralines are everywhere. We are busy making all sorts of pralines and truffles at work and also at school. I just finished my first pralinen course at school and it was awesome! We learned the basics of praline making and some great tricks and recipes. We made about 8 different sorts of pralines, some made with marzipan and others with a rich chocolate ganache filling. They were all absolutely delicious! I still need to improve on my decorating though...
I'm already planning the different praline flavors that I want to try next. Pralines are great to give as presents, especially for christmas and thats what i'm planning to give people this year. I'm also going to take a whole box full to Finland for christmas.
I'm in the phase now where i'm trying to create interesting and different flavors, but thats turning out to be a little more challenging. I only have a few flavor ideas, but I need more. I need to find inspiration.
I recently ordered a bit of equipment and ingredients for praline making. It's impossible to find some of the igredients and equipment in the normal store so I had to order some. The site that I ordered from has an unbelievable wide selection of equipment and ingredients for praline making. I could have ordered everything! The site also has a large selection of other baking equipment and ingredients, which is great. There's another site from which I want order some other stuff. I'm obviously in another one of my "obsessed" phases. I can't wait for my little package to arrive. Hopefully next week!
