Based on a bar with a similar name (and I'm sure you can figure out which), the combination of nougat, caramel, peanuts and chocolate is as classic as it is crave-able.

If there's ever a time to make nougat, it's now. Store shelves are just bursting with the stuff; but wouldn't it be better to whip up a fresh batch? The Liddabit Sweets Candy Cookbook shares this sentiment and has a recipe for classic European nougat, more authentically known as torrone.
Memories of crumbly, powdery diner mints made me slightly skeptical of this recipe. I'm glad I ignored my instincts. For a small amount of effort and time (and a little food coloring) you'll end up with a lovely assortment of densely sweet, lightly minted treats. Clearly, The Liddabit Sweets Candy Cookbook doesn't do duds.
