HOW WE MAKE OUR CHOCOLATE NOUGAT.
At Turrones Galiana we offer two varieties of artisan Chocolate Nougat: milk chocolate and pure chocolate. Almonds in abundance are one of its main ingredients, and you know that not just any variety, but the queen of almonds, the Marcona . However, the main ingredient is obviously cocoa . We take care of making a careful selection of the best cocoas to make our chocolate nougat and in this way ensure what our house brand is: unique texture and flavor. At Turrones Galiana we use only top quality raw materials.
They are made by pouring initial syrup into previously melted chocolate (pure, or with milk). Then the almond is added and the mixture is simmered. When homogenized, it is poured into the mold where it must rest at room temperature until it is compacted. Given its solid texture, it belongs to the so-called Hard Nougat.
And now we will answer the most frequent question about a chocolate nougat: Why don't we call it a chocolate bar, what is the real difference? The difference between a chocolate nougat and a simple chocolate bar is in the quantity of the ingredients: a nougat is a much more complex product, which unlike a chocolate bar contains several pastes (hazelnut, cocoa) and solids (cocoa -cacao butter). In addition, the percentage of hazelnuts is usually much higher in a Nougat.
Therefore, to taste the authentic taste of artisan chocolate, a chocolate bar does not serve them, even if it was of a certain quality. The only way to reach the chocolate peak is to indulge in a chocolate nougat bar.
