Yes, happy National Waffle Day, and Happy National Nougat Day! Now tell me if I'm wrong, but I believe that we had a waffle day just a few weeks ago. So let's talk about nougat shall we?
While French-style nougat tends to contain egg whites - blegh - German-style nougat is made of chocolate and nuts. This makes it just a tiny jump to a praline.
Enter Lake Champlain chocolates, a company I discovered while doing a small fundraiser for Vermont after that unpleasant flooding incident (thanks to Cassandra of Vegan New Orleans). Their Hazelnut Praline bar is one of the most delectable treats I have ever tasted - and is available at the uptown Whole Foods! So enjoy some nougat-come-praline today. ;)
