Nougatpralinen




Nougat is a type of confection made from sugar, honey, and nuts. It is popular throughout Europe. The word “nougat” is French, and it comes from the Latin nux, for “nut.” The two primary variations of nougat are white nougat and brown nougat. White nougat is made with egg whites, so it is lighter, softer, and chewier in texture. Brown nougat is made with caramelized sugar, and tends to be harder and darker in color.

  1. Bring the whipping cream in a small pot to a boil over low heat. Chop the couverture into the smaller chunks and stir into the whipping cream until melted. Turn off the heat and transfer the mixture in a mixing bowl. Add in nut nougat, butter and peanut butter.
  2. Set it in a bowl of cold water and whip the mixture until fluffy and cold. Scrape the mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a star tip and pipe into the paper praline forms. Sprinkle the tops with preferred nuts. Cool the praline until set.

I am going to have to try this! I love nougat so much but my teeth don't. So when it is melted, I can do it!
