Four Ingredient Nougat Bars

I recall growing up and seeing this treat on the dessert table every holiday. This was one of those desserts that was saved for adults only.

I never did understand that as I was growing up. When I got older, I started making this treat myself and although I do not understand why it was an adult only treat, I understand why they kept it all to themselves.

It had nothing to do with it being an expensive treat, or the fact that there was only one plate of these.

No, all it was is that the adults knew that if the group of kids got to take one, there would be none left for them.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            How can some treat so good be so easy to make? What is the secret?

There really is no secret to these. There are only four ingredients, a short amount of time and they are ready.

            Is it true that nougat is a protein treat?

Yes, these are the perfect treat after a heavy workout. They replenish your body much quicker.

            How do I store this treat?

I like to keep the pan of these in the refrigerator. It is easier to cut the nougat when it is cold.
