Nougat & chocolate parfait

Hey pixels!! How is going 2017? Just in case you need something sweet, here I have  an awesome dessert that you can make in just 30′ or less. Do you have a small piece of nougat at home? You can use it here.

Repurposing nougat leftovers is great, because when you just have a small piece everyone wants to eat it. This way, there is still enough nougat for everyone, in a sweet, yumy way.

I try to find a new recipe every year. Last year was this  flan; today, this parfait. What will be next year?? I hope you like it, my happy pixels.

Just in case, I use Jijona nougat. It’s sweet and soft, and can be used in a lot of recipes. It’s the best to cook with.

Ingredients (serves 3):

Nougat:

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 250ml heavy cream
  • 30g sugar
  • 75g nougat
  • 20g conrnstarch

Chocolate:

  • 150g dark chocolate
  • 150ml heavy cream

Decoration:

  • 3 egg whites
  • 90g sugar

Directions:

Nougat: Pour heavy cream in a saucepan and bring to a simmer.

Beat yolks with sugar and cornstarch; add boling heavy cream. Pour mix in the saucepan and cook again on low heat for 2-3′ or until it thickens a bit. Remove from heat.

Add nougat and stirr until totally dissolved. Set aside.

Chocolate: Heat heavy cream like you did before. Add chocolate and stirr until chocolate is completely melted. Set aside.

When both puddings are at room temperature, is time to assemble your parfaits. Starting with nougat pudding, layer both of them in individual ramekins. Keep in your fridge for a couple of hours  before eating.

To decorate, whisk egg whites and sugar until you have soft peaks. Use the meringue to decorate.

How do you use your nougat leftovers, my happy pixels? Do you make any special sweet to celebrate a new year? Please, let me know in the comments below.
