What Do I need for Vegan Candied Pecans?
Are Praline Pecans The Same as Candied Pecans?
Praline pecan and candied pecans are generally not the same.
Although if you want to get technical, I would argue that they both are candies, which contain pecans.
Praline pecans are clustered candies which include both pecans and various sugar combinations. There is generally an animal based product in praline pecans such as whipping cream.
These vegan candied pecans are generally broken up into their own unique sugar coated nut, which makes them different than a praline pecan which forms more of a cluster.
However, I do think it would be easy enough to create vegan praline pecan clusters simply by switching out the dairy in the pecan clusters for coconut cream.
