The idea for the confection that eventually became the praline traveled with French immigrants to New Orleans well over 200 years ago.  In their original incarnation, pralines were almonds coated with boiled sugar, a treat first concocted in the home of 17th century French diplomat Cesar du Plessis Praslin by one of his chefs.  The name "Praslin" eventually evolved into "praline."
