Top Chocolate Layer

  • 2 cups (11.5 ounces) milk chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

Instructions

  1. Line a 9x13-inch cookie sheet (or a quarter sheet pan) with parchment paper. Make space in your freezer for the pan.

Nougat Layer

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add butter, sugar, and heavy cream. Stir occasionally until the mixture comes to a boil .

  3. Remove the cookie sheet from the freezer and pour the nougat mixture evenly in the pan.

  4. Place the pan in the freezer to set until caramel layer is ready.
