One of the yummiest candy recipes from my mom's collection. I like it with pecans, but it was meant for cashews or peanuts. I'm guessing any salted nut would be fabulous!

Delicious! I used homemade caramel.

This is YUMMY. I had some trouble with the caramel staying viable long enough for the nuts to stick, and I used salted cashews that I chopped, just for a different take on the whole thing, and they taste wonderful! The nougat is indeed quite dry, I used a pastry cutter and then kneaded by hand and it turned out exactly as it should be. Thanks homegirl,it's so much better than store-bought!
