Ingredients

How to make it

  • ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  • In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar,
  • corn syrup, water, and salt.
  • Heat, stirring, to boiling, then continue to cook using a candy thermometer to monitor the temperature.
  • Beat the egg whites until they are stiff and form peaks.
  • Don't use a plastic bowl for this.
  • 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.
  • Continue to mix until the candy begins to harden to the consistency of dough.
  • This may take as long as 20 minutes. At this point add the semisweet chocolate chips.
  • Remember that the candy must already be at the consistency of dough when you add the chocolate;
  • The nougat will thicken no more after the chocolate is added.
  • When the chocolate is thoroughly blended and the nougat has thickened,
  • Press it into a greased 9x9−inch pan.
  • Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.
  • 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.
  • Melt the milk chocolate chips in the microwave for 2 minutes on half
  • power, stirring halfway through the heating time.
  • Melt completely, but be careful not to overheat. Resting a bar on a fork dip each bar into the chocolate to coat completely and place on wax paper.
  • Cool until firm at room temperature, 1 to 2 hours. Makes 14 candy bars.
