    1. 1
      In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar, corn syrup, water and salt. Heat, stirring, to boiling, then continue to cook, using a candy thermometer to monitor the temperature.
    2. 2
      Beat the egg whites until they are stiff and form peaks. Don't use a plastic bowl for this.
    3. 3
      When the sugar solution comes to 270 degrees F, or the soft-crack stage, remove from the heat and pour the mixture in thin streams into the egg whites, blending completely with the mixer set on low speed.
    4. 4
      Continue to mix until the candy begins to harden to the consistency of dough. This may take as long as 20 minutes.
    5. 5
      At this point, add the semisweet chocolate chips. Remember that the candy must already be at the consistency of dough when you add the chocolate; the nougat won't thicken after the chocolate is added.
    6. 6
      When the chocolate is thoroughly blended and the nougat has thickened, press it into a greased 9x9 inch pan.
    7. 7
      Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.
    8. 8
      With a sharp knife, cut the candy in half down the middle of the pan. Then cut across into 7 segments to create a total of 14 bars.
    9. 9
      Melt the milk chocolate chips and shortening in the microwave for 2 minutes, on half power, stirring halfway through the heating time. Melt completely, but be careful not to overheat.
    10. 10
      Resting a bar on a fork, dip each bar into the chocolate to coat completely and place on wax paper.
    11. 11
      Cool till firm at room temperature, 1-2 hours, or I would try putting in the fridge to set.
