  1. Nougat

    Nougat is a variety of similar traditional confectioneries made with sugar and/or honey, roasted nuts, whipped egg whites, and sometimes chopped candied fruit. The consistency of nougat can range from soft and chewy to hard and crunchy depending on its composition, and it is used in a variety of candy bars and chocolates. The word nougat comes from Occitan pan nogat, from nux gatum, which means nut cake. There are three basic kinds of nougat: The first, and most common, is white nougat which is made with beaten egg whites and honey. The second is brown nougat which is made without egg whites and has a firmer, often crunchy texture. The third is the Viennese or German nougat which is essentially a chocolate and nut praline.
