Advanced nougat? There are many sweet recipes to recycle it in a gluttonous way from which you can choose, simply indulge your tastes. Holiday leftovers - including pandoro , panettone and dried fruit - impose on us the moral duty to recycle them in preparations that avoid throwing them away. Here are the most delicious ones with nougat you can bring to the table.
Advanced nougat, sweet recipes
Baking sweets to recycle the nougat is useful when the typical Sicilian Christmas cake is not liked au naturel. Even those who don't go crazy for it can use it as an ingredient for tarts, donuts and biscuits with exceptional results. Take note!
We can only start with the nougat parfait , a constant presence of the Christmas holidays and their post. It is a simple spoon dessert to prepare. It is usually made by mixing the whipped cream with the egg yolks mixed with the sugar, the egg whites and the chopped nougat . Pure delight.
Leftover nougat tart
Baking it is very simple. Just prepare a milk or pastry cream and add some coarsely chopped nougat (alternatively you can use Nutella). Then you need to line a mold with the rolled out pastry and fill it with the cream. In the oven at 180°C for 30 minutes.
Donut with nougat and leftover
Another dessert with leftover nougat is the donut . Perfect for breakfast, it can be obtained by combining 150 g of chopped hard white nougat with the classic grandmother's donut recipe. In the oven at 180°C for 35-40 minutes and it will be ready for tasting.
Cake with leftover nougat
The same premises that we have just seen apply to the leftover soft nougat cake . If you have a tried-and-tested recipe for orange cake or yogurt cake, just enrich it with minced nougat and proceed with cooking. With the same dough you can also make muffins with nougat.
Biscuits with chocolate nougat
Recycling the nougat into these cookies is a genius move. You can use the recipe for shortcrust pastry or your favorite shortbread biscuits and add some coarsely chopped chocolate nougat . Once mixed, roll out the dough, cut out the biscuits and bake them in a hot oven at 180°C for about 12 minutes.
Chocolate salami with nougat
We close with the last tip on how to use the leftover brittle. Add it to the chocolate salami together with the dry biscuits . It will be a hit and the kids will love it too.
How to mince nougat
Knowing how to chop and crumble nougat can come in handy if you've never done it before. It is preferable to first break it by hand into smaller pieces, then place them on a cutting board and proceed by hand with a special knife. Otherwise, for a faster result, you can always use the Thermomix or a blender .
How to soften hard nougat
If the recipe you are following requires you to do so, here are some tips on how to soften hard nougat :
- Melt it in a bain-marie in pieces together with a couple of tablespoons of liquid (milk or cream).
- Or opt for the microwave. In this case, 1 minute is enough, otherwise the nougat will become dark and impractical to mix.
