What’s better than a candy bar? A homemade candy bar, of course! This copycat Three Musketeers recipe is everything you love about the original, but better—soft, pillowy nougat in the center and a melt-in-your-mouth chocolate coating. And the best part? It only takes a few ingredients!
Copycat Three Musketeers Candy Bars
14 ounces marshmallow creme
32 ounces milk chocolate candy wafers
Prepare an 8×8 baking dish by lining it with aluminum foil and spraying it with nonstick spray. Follow package directions to melt half of the milk chocolate wafers in the microwave or on a double boiler. While the chocolate is melting, transfer the marshmallow creme to a mixing bowl. Heat it for 20 seconds in the microwave to soften it before pouring the melted chocolate into it and stirring until well combined. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish and spread evenly. Transfer the dish to the freezer for roughly 2 hours, or until the nougat has thoroughly hardened.
Prepare a shallow dish with powdered sugar and set aside. Take two large pieces of parchment paper and transfer the frozen nougat onto one, removing the foil. Place a cooling rack over the second piece of parchment. Using a sharp knife, quickly cut the nougat into your preferred size of candy bars, then roll each bar in the powdered sugar, so that it has a fine dusting to keep it from getting sticky. (Brush off excess powdered sugar.) Once all nougat bars are prepared and resting on the parchment, melt the last half of chocolate wafers until thin. Coat the bottom side of each nougat bar with melted chocolate, then arrange them on the cooling rack, with about a half inch space between them. Next, pour the chocolate over the tops of the bars, using your fingers or a small spatula to make sure all the sizes are coated in chocolate and the excess can drip down onto the parchment. Allow the chocolate to cool and harden before serving. To keep firm, store in the fridge or freezer.
