Another yummy post. Belgium is known for its chocolate. Don’t get me wrong, their chocolate is good. Very, very good. It is also a competitor of Swiss Chocolate, so I must be diplomatic. Fortunately for me, I haven’t seen pralines here like you do in Belgium. Aaaahhh, a loophole.
What are pralines? A chocolate shell that could be filled with butter, cream, liquor, nuts, marzipan (sugared almond paste), or even a different kind of chocolate. They come in rectangular boxes like you see below. If you see one of these boxes, you know instantly that something good is headed your way.
The best part is that you, in America can taste some of this yumminess. I know that I supported Belgian businesses in the US whenever possible (beer, ahem, and pralines). Leonidas and Neuhaus are both in the US. Neuhaus is even in Asheville!
P.S. I may or may not have snuck some with breakfast. If I did, please don’t judge me.
