Easy30 m.For 575 grams

* Plus 9 hours of rest and refrigeration

Ingredients

  • 175 gr. grated coconut
  • 125 gr. sugar
  • 75 ml. water
  • 200 gr. white chocolate
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (optional)

Instructions

  1. First of all we prepare a dense syrup. For this, we will heat the sugar and water in a saucepan for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally to avoid sticking. After this time, we remove it from the fire and let it cool.
  2. Put the grated coconut in a bowl, add the syrup and mix well to obtain a moist dough. We pass it to a mold and let it rest for 5 hours in the fridge. After this time, we take it out of the fridge and unmold it very carefully.
  3. Chop one of the white chocolate tablets, put it in a cup and put it in the microwave at full power for 1 minute (a little more if you see that it is not enough to melt it).
  4. Place the nougat on a grid, mix the chocolate with the oil if we want it more unctuous, and cover the nougat with the melted chocolate, making sure it is well covered, including the edges. We let it cool in the fridge for 2 hours so that it solidifies well.
  5. Chop the other chocolate tablet, melt it in the same way as the other and, placing the nougat on the grid again, pour the chocolate on the other side so that there is a consistent and uniform coverage. We let it sit in the fridge for another 2 hours.
  6. After this time, the nougat will be ready to take it out of the fridge and serve it.
