Rich, chocolatey, and with just the right amount of crunch—Caramel Nougat is the perfect snack to have on hand when the sweet cravings hit you. This easy no-bake dessert is rich in chocolate flavor, with just the right amount of crunch from the nuts and sweetness from honey and condensed milk. It’s not for the faint-hearted, but sweet tooths will love it! You need only four ingredients to make it (chocolate, honey, condensed milk, and mixed nuts). Simply melt the chocolate, add in the rest of the ingredients, and mix. It’s super easy and delicious! You won’t be able to stop at one.


The condensed milk acts as a binder and adds sweetness, don’t substitute it with another ingredient.

Use a high-quality bittersweet chocolate (like Ghiradelli)

The longer the mixture is refrigerated, the easier it will be to cut.

You can add different nuts, chopped dried fruits, caramel bits, or dried coconut to the mixture. Don’t add too much, otherwise, the mixture will be too dry.

Make sure to line the cake tin with parchment paper before adding the chocolate mixture as this will make removing the nougat easier. Don’t use foil, as it might tear easier.

If you prefer, you can add a sprinkling of salt on top of the fudge before setting it in the fridge.

How to Store Caramel Nougat

Store the caramel nougat in an airtight container (with wax paper between layers) at room temperature for up to two weeks.

You can also freeze the nougat for up to 3 months. Wrap the squares tightly in wax paper, then wrap them again in aluminum foil. Freeze in an airtight container. Thaw overnight in the fridge before serving.
