FOUR INGREDIENT NOUGAT BARS

 


Begin by halving the gumdrops to prepare them for the mixture.

Line your baking dish with parchment paper, allowing extra paper to overhang the sides for easy removal later.

Second Step:


Heat water in a pot until it boils. Then, set a heatproof bowl or another pan on top to create a makeshift double boiler.

Combine the miniature marshmallows, white chocolate chips, and melted butter in the top bowl or pan.

Melt these ingredients together, stirring until you achieve a smooth, homogenous mixture.

Third Step:


With care, fold the gumdrops into the melted mixture, ensuring they're evenly distributed.

Transfer this glossy concoction into your prepared baking dish, spreading it out evenly.

Allow the nougat to set by letting it rest overnight. This patience will be rewarded with perfect consistency.

Final Touch:


Once set, use the parchment paper overhangs to lift the nougat slab out of the dish. Slice it into bars, ready for sharing and savoring.
