Coconut Pecan Nougat

Coconut Pecan Nougat

We created this for the holiday season, but we had a hard time deciding what to call it. Part nougat, part fudge, maybe even a little bark, we accidentally made a vegan, gluten-free candy that tastes as good as its over-the-top Christmas candy counterparts. Put it alongside Aunt Duveen’s divinity and nobody will even know it’s from a different food generation. Not only that, but it’s easy to make.

Baking them enhances the warming qualities we crave this time of year.
