Serves:

14 bars

Ingredients

3 c
granulated sugar
3/4 c
light corn syrup
3/4 c
water
1/8 tsp
salt
3
egg whites
1/3 c
semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 bag(s)
(12 oz) milk chocolate chips

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar, corn syrup, water, and salt.
2
Heat, stirring, to boiling, then continue to cook, using a candy thermometer to monitor the temperature.
3
Beat the egg whites until they are stiff and form peaks.
4
When 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.
5
Continue to mix until the candy begins to harden to the consistency of dough.
6
Add the semisweet chocolate chips.

Once thoroughly blended and the nougat has thickened, press it into a greased 9x9-inch pan.
7
Refrigerate 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.
8
Melt the milk chocolate chips in the microwave for 2 minutes on half power, stirring halfway through the heating time.
9
Resting 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.
10
Cool till firm at room temperature, 1 to 2 hours.
