How to make it

  • Step 1
  • In a large saucepan on medium heat combine the sugar, corn syrup, water and salt.
  • Stir to boiling then continue to cook using a candy thermometer.
  • Step 2
  • Beat egg whites until they are stiff and begin to form.
  • You'll want to use a glass bowl for mixing, plastic is not desirable.
  • When the sugar solution reaches 270 degrees F, remove from heat and slowly pour in with the egg whites in a mixer while blending slowly. Continue to blend until the mixture becomes the consistency of dough. This can take up to 20 minutes.
  • Step 3
  • Once the mixture reaches the consistency of dough, add the semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • Do not add before the sugar/egg white mixture reaches a doughy consistency.
  • When the chocolate is blended and the nougat is thick, press into a 9x9" pan.
  • Step 4
  • Put the pan into the fridge until firm.
  • This should take about 30 minutes.
  • Step 5
  • With a sharp knife, cut the candy in half, then across in 7 segments to create 14 bars.
  • Step 6
  • Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave for about 2 minutes stirring half way.
  • Be careful not to over heat.
  • Step 7
  • Take a fork and stab a candy bar, then dip into the chocolate.
  • Place on wax paper to harden.
  • Repeat this step for all 14 bars.
  • Step 8
  • Let the bars harden and cool.
  • This should take about 1-2 hours. Yields 14 bars.

    History
    3 Musketeers Introduced
    The 3 Musketeers candy bar was invented in 1932 in the United States by M&M/MARS. It was the third candy bar produced by the company. It was originally packaged as three, individual mini bars of chocolate, vanilla and strawberry nougat; hence the name, 3 Musketeers.
    Price
    In 1932, the original 3 Musketeers cost 5 cents and had three pieces, two of which you could share with friends. As of 2009, the average cost of a 3 Musketeer candy bar was 65 cents.
    When it Became One
    The 3 Musketeers became a single candy bar with a creamy chocolate nougat, which was the most popular flavor, when World War II made its way to the forefront and money became tight. Strawberry and vanilla had to take a backseat, since the U.S. government ordered rationing of all sugars in spring 1942. It was too expensive to produce all three flavors.
    Trivia and Nutritional Information
    Outside of Canada and the U.S., the 3 Musketeers is known as Milky Way. The regular size of the 3 Musketeers candy bar has 257 calories, 5 grams of saturated fat and 40 grams of sugar.
