Four Ingredient Nougat Bars

Four Ingredient Nougat Bars – I recall growing up and seeing this treat on the dessert table every holiday. This was one of those desserts that was saved for adults only.

I never did understand that as I was growing up. When I got older, I started making this treat myself and although I do not understand why it was an adult only treat, I understand why they kept it all to themselves.


  • 2 packages of miniature marshmallows
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 packages of white chocolate chips
  • 1 ½ cups red and green gumdrops

How To Make Four Ingredient Nougat Bars


  1. Cut the gum drops in half
  2. Layer a baking dish with parchment paper, be sure there is enough paper hanging over the sides
  3. Bring a pot of water to a boil on the stove


  1. Place a heat proof bowl or another pan over the first pot with the water
  2. To the top dish add in the miniature marshmallows, the white chocolate chips and the butter
  3. Melt the ingredients in the pan, over( or rather like a double boiler)
  4. Stir until all is melted


  1. Gently fold in the gumdrops
  2. Pour into the baking dish with the parchment paper
  3. Let rest overnight so the nougat sets
  4. Lift out of the baking dish using the parchment paper, cut into bars
  5. Enjoy!
