I love eGullet, but I rarely go there because I just don't have the time to read it. But I poked around a bit today and found this wonderful tutorial by Kerry Beal on how to make confections: caramel, nougat, fudge and lollipops. Talk about food porn! Yum! Take a look at the homemade Snickers. I love how she describes nougat: "Essentially marshmallow with boiled syrup." So now, when people ask you, "What IS nougat, anyway?" you can tell them!
