Nougat is an important ingredient in the 3 Musketeers Bar, as well as in many other candy bars created by M & M/Mars. Nougat is made by mixing a hot sugar syrup with whipped egg whites until the solution cools and stiffens, creating a frappe. Other ingredients may be added to the nougat during this process to give it different flavors. In this recipe, you'll add chocolate chips to create a dark, chocolaty nougat.

But the 3 Musketeers Bar wasn't always filled with just a chocolate nougat. In fact, when the candy bar was created back in 1932, it was actually three pieces with three flavors: vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate. After World War II, the product was changed to a single chocolate bar because that was the favorite flavor, and customers wanted more of it. Thankfully they didn't decide to change the name to 1 Musketeer!

Youll need a heavy-duty electric mixer for this recipe.

3 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup
Better than the original

With some patience, these come out very delicious. I have made them several times. You don't want to buy the store bought ones after you've had these... they are so soft and fresh!
