« Nougat Gifts » Recipe

To make this recipe (no baking required), you will need:

  • 3 bars of soft white nougat (if possible, with different kinds of fruit to add a little variety: almonds, hazelnuts, candied fruit)
  • 8.8 oz marzipan (you may alternate the colors)
  • powdered sugar
  • liquorice wheels

Cut the nougat into equal-sized squares (approximately 2 inches by 2 inches).

Sprinkle the table surface with powdered sugar and then roll out the marzipan with a rolling pin to a thickness of about 0.2 inches.

Cut into squares of the same size as the squares of nougat.

Make the little ‘gift packets’ keeping to the following order:

  • a layer of nougat
  • a layer of marzipan
  • a layer of nougat
  • a layer of marzipan
  • a layer of nougat

Unroll the liquorice wheels and wind a length of the liquorice around the gift packet, finishing off with a neatly-tied knot (as if you were wrapping a gift).

There you have it...
