Chocolate and Peanut Butter Nougat Squares
As frequent readers will know, Streusel and I will pretty much stuff chocolate in to any recipe we can. Streusel, in particular, gets creative with it. I’m super in love with peanut butter and chocolate together, in any form, at anytime. And since I’m perpetually researching ways to increase opportunities to eat my favorite flavor combination, why not use Candy Month to try out my hand at something new? Chocolate Peanut Butter Nougat Squares it is, then!
Extra bonus: you get to look like a fancy-pants for making homemade chocolates AND they’re surprisingly easy to make.
The recipe comes from Saveur, and I’ll admit that, at first, I wasn’t so sure I wanted to make it – it looked fussy. It was only after reading the recipe a few times over that I realized that I not only own all the ingredients (and that it gave me the opportunity to use up some of the horrendous powdered milk I’ve had it my cupboard for about 4 million years) but it actually isn’t that hard. And I was pleasantly surprised to see how quickly the nougat came together – with the right equipment, it was actually quite simple and not time consuming.
The nougat does need to sit for a bit to cool down and firm up. After that, they need to be dipped in the melted chocolate, and fair warning: while this task is not at all hard, it does take a bit of time. After that, sprinkle with salt, allow to harden up (I put mine in the fridge to speed up the process), and then they’re good to be gobbled! (or gift, I suppose, if you’re the generous sort).
