In 1944, Leah Johnson opened a small French Quarter candy shop that soon came to be known as Leah's Pralines. Now, 75 years later, we're a third generation women owned business still making the same fresh, Creole candies and chocolate confections that generations of both locals and travelers have grown to love.
Cajun Mud is one of our most popular chocolate bars. It's simply a layer of rich chocolate topped with handmade caramel and crunchy pecans then drizzled with more chocolate. Our Cajun Mud bars are similar to pecan turtles but in the shape of a square.
Each box contains one pound of chocolate which is approximately 6-8 squares of Cajun Mud. Please specify if you would like milk chocolate, dark chocolate or both.
All of our chocolates are made by hand. We use Felchin Couverture which is a high quality Swiss chocolate that is Fair Trade certified and made from beans that are grown in Ghana. Our dark chocolate is 60% and our milk chocolate is 36%.
Just received our order from Leah's. Got it QUICK! The pralines were HUGE & better than my grandmother's (Sorry, Nanny!) and the bacon pecan brittle! Well,......& let's not forget the pecan log slices..it is very well named "Gone to Heaven"!!!!!
That bacon pecan brittle is like ambrosia.
Received some of your peanut butter cups from my husband for mothers day. So good - fell in love with them years ago when we were in New Orleans. Nothing like them in western New York!
