A nice combination of caramel and creamy nougat. The dough is moist, soft and the 2 differnt taste layers work together nicely. I came up with this, when I wanted to prepare some sweets to bring along to the office and my dear colleagues really did enjoy them. A lot :). Please note: the recipe editor would not allow for nougat or praline NOT pralines. The nougat I am talking about is of nutella-like taste, but is usually more solid and can be bought in bar shape here. If you cannot find nougat, try substituting the same amount of Nutella hazelnut spread or noisette chocolate.
