Dare I admit I was up until midnight last night baking? But it was so worth it. The eggnog macarons and mousse verines were to die for!
However my nougat that yes indeed 'looked like nougat' when it went into the pan, certainly did not behave like nougat should when I took it out. Who knows what went wrong…perhaps some more in depth research needs to be done before I attempt a second batch.
Also, a little word of warning on the apple cider caramels…they are VERY soft. If you are after a firm, chewy, toffee like caramel, then the recipe link in my earlier post is possibly not for you. They did taste lovely though!
