FOOD HACK: Quick and Easy Chewy Nougat

Nougats are delicious but usually you buy it from the store because it is too tedious to do it yourself at home with dangerous hot sugar and a thermometer. 

Here to the rescue!! This recipe is another game changer. One more hack for you to add it to your repertoire. With 1 secret ingredient... Marshmallows!

Nougats are basically hot sugar and egg whites, the marshmallow takes care both of those elements.

I would not say this is can replace a traditional torrone in any way but this is a quick fix if you are just craving for a little chewy candy or if you are trying to impress some family and friends when you make them as little handmade edible gifts. So lets get to the recipe....

Infographic Recipe will be updated soon!
