- 3 c
- granulated sugar
- 3/4 c
- light corn syrup
- 3/4 c
- 1/8 tsp
- egg whites
- 1/3 c
- semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 bag(s)
- (12 oz) milk chocolate chips
1In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar, corn syrup, water, and salt.
2Heat, stirring, to boiling, then continue to cook, using a candy thermometer to monitor the temperature.
3Beat the egg whites until they are stiff and form peaks.
4When the sugar solution comes to 270 degrees F, or the soft-crack stage, remove from the heat and pour the mixture in thin streams into the egg whites, blending completely with a mixer set on low speed.
5Continue to mix until the candy begins to harden to the consistency of dough.
6Add the semisweet chocolate chips.
Once thoroughly blended and the nougat has thickened, press it into a greased 9x9-inch pan.
7Refrigerate until firm.
With a sharp knife, cut the candy in half down the middle of the pan. Then cut across into 7 segments to create a total of 14 bars.
8Melt the milk chocolate chips in the microwave for 2 minutes on half power, stirring halfway through the heating time.
9Resting a bar on a fork (and using your fingers if needed), dip each bar into the chocolate to coat completely and place on wax paper.
10Cool till firm at room temperature, 1 to 2 hours.
