Praline can be called a dessert on its own since you can eat it just like that or you can use it as a cake topping or filling. Plus it is very versatile given that you can make it with almost every nut or dried fruit like pecans, pitachios, hazelnuts, etc. What really matters is that the nuts are previously peeled and toasted in a sauce pan or in the oven (which is better) and that you follow the directions.
