Pistachio Pralines

Sometimes before I decide to post something, I need to think it over and over and over again.
Here’s the story…

… these were supposed to be the most beautiful pralines I’ve ever made.
Well-formed, smooth… little perfections, so to speak :)
Obviously, everything went wrong… Standard situation, which in my case means manual failure!
Just the question is… so what?
So what they are not smooth and they look like little monsters if the taste compensates everything? The pistachio mass is so good that I had huge problems with refraining myself from eating everything straight from the bowl.
So what they don’t look like role models if they disappeared the moment they appeared!
Gosh, it’s such a pleasure to see someone who is not so fond of pistachios at all, who says it can’t be good, who tells you “don’t do it, it’s a waste of time”… to see this person sneaking up to the fridge just to eat one more praline! :)
Amazing.

So… It seems you’re reading a post which wasn’t meant to be here :)
Taste is what counts and let it always be this way :)

PS I’d die for this pistachio mass. No joke!

Not much of a story about them.
I just had to use the rest of mascarpone :) And make something edible, by the way :)
I was surprised myself with the taste! I mean, I didn’t expect them to be so yummy!
Such little things… So good :)

They were supposed to say goodbye to September but seems they’re here to greet October. Fair enough :)
And one more thing, they were really willing to sit for me while taking pictures! As if they asked me to take one more and one more and…
I know, silly it sounds ;)
To be fair, each of them deserved an individual portrait ;)

Taste-wise – delicious.
Decoration-wise – well, you know I’m manually disabled ;P

Try them out :)

It will get more nutellish on Sarenka, I guess :)
I love Nutella. Do I have to say more? :)

These pralines taste the same as the original Ferrero Rocher. Really really really. No joke.
No glazing as you can see. It’s because I’ve been escaping from making it recently :) No idea why :)
Be aware because they’re highly addictive. You won’t be satisfied with one only :)
I found this recipe way too late…

For the original version of this recipe jump here :)

Yummy!

Always confusing things… yes, it’s me… :)
This time, the same, exactly the same. Changing, modifying, creating… and to my surprise, they’re so good! :)
I promised to myself that apart from Prune Pralines I would check other praline recipes too :) And so I did!
If I were to say which one are better… hmm… difficult choice. As usual, you’ll have to check on both recipes, I think :)
That’s why… here they come :)
Not much to do, such fun from snacking ;P

Culinary Blog of 2013.
I had to check it, I just had to.
The moment I did… I got depressed. Seriously. When my eyes saw all this vegetarian stuff, I just started wondering where we were going with all this cooking and baking… Kind of sad it was for me to see that the world chose this new fashion over our beautiful tradition of cooking.
And… you know what? I was sooooooo wrong! I can’t recall being so wrong!
I checked one of the recipes and I was left speechless. That is why, I would like to send my apologies to the author of JadÅ‚onomia. I hope you’ll meet less judgemental people on your culinary way :)
These pralines are flawless! I would have never thought you could make such food magic using only few ingredients, fooling one of the biggest chocolate-lovers, by the way ;)
If the rest of the recipes are equally good, I’ve got no further questions :)

It’s fast, it’s healthy, it’s so unphotogenic, yet delicious :)
With slight changes I have introduced :)

One more thing, is it possible to prepare it avoiding eating half of it straight from the bowl? :D
