Homemade German Nougat From Scratch

Homemade German Nougat From Scratch

German nougat is so delicious – it’s used as baking ingredient, as cake or praline filling, for ice creams and desserts or eaten as it is. I always wanted to make German nougat at home – especially since I can’t eat dairy (and therefore store-bought nougat) anymore. However, all recipes that I tried produced more a chocolate spread – not real German nougat!

I adapted the recipe slightly because the nougat was made with too much chocolate. I’m so pleased with the recipe: This homemade German nougat is even better than store-bought German nougat! I never thought that it’d be so easy to make German nougat from scratch at home.
