The History Of Pralines & King introduction to the making of this sweet succulent candy. French settlers brought the recipe to Louisiana, where both sugar cane & pecan trees were plentiful. During the 19th century, New Orleans chefs substituted pecans for almonds, added cream to thicken the confection, and thus created what became known throughout the American South as the Praline..... In 1962 King learned to make candy from a fellow prisoner named “Cap Pistol.” Over the years, using a stove made from cans and tissue. He perfected the recipe. Now that he’s free he can make life a little “Sweeter” for you. Thanks for the continued support!! All sales are final.. There are 4oz. to each bag of candy.. All candy is $4 a bag.
