In the past the extent of my nougat consumption experiences have mostly consisted of the type that come in a few well-known candy bars and I’ve been okay with that. I don’t know that I’ve ever had any burning desire to seek out anything more. That is until I finally caught up on my recent issues of Bon Appetit and saw cherry pistachio nougat.
Their picture of snowy white nougat enveloping bright pistachios and vibrant red cherries just drew me in. Unfortunately, my pictures do not do this candy justice like theirs did however, the taste is amazing. The toasted pistachios are perfectly balanced by the tart sweetness of dried cherries.
What’s even better is making this candy was much easier than I anticipated. Now with that realization, I can see many nougat variations… how about almonds and cranberries next time? How about a chocolate nougat? The possibilities are endless.
