Opened in 1944, Leah's in the French Quarter is a NOLA classic when it comes to the praline. This old-fashioned shop churns out several varieties daily, using a family recipe that's been passed down through three generations. Stop in for favorites like rich chocolate pralines made with Swiss dark chocolate, creamy traditional pralines studded with local pecans, or the salty-sweet bacon pecan brittle (no, you're not dreaming). There are all kinds of heavenly chocolates, too, including peanut butter cups, pecan turtles, and (if you're hunting for a fun souvenir) chocolate alligators. Is your sweet tooth tingling yet?
