  • 18 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 16 ounces mini marshmallows
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cups Dots Fruity Candy



1 ) Line a 9 x 13 pan with wax or parchment paper. To prevent sticking, give it a quick spray with nonstick spray.

2 ) In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the mini marshmallows, white chocolate chips, and butter.

3 ) Microwave the mixture for 90 seconds. At the 45-second mark, pause to stir and continue microwaving.

4 ) After an additional 30 seconds (pausing to stir again at the 15-second mark), your concoction should be fluffy, thick, and oh-so-creamy.

5 ) Stir in 2 cups of Dots Fruity Candy into the mix. Let the colors and flavors blend harmoniously.

6 ) Working swiftly, transfer the nougat mixture onto the lined pan. Be prepared for some delightful messiness – it’s all part of the fun!

7 ) Use clean, nonstick-sprayed hands to spread the mixture evenly and ensure a smooth finish.

8 ) Pop the pan into the refrigerator for a minimum of 6 hours or until set. If you’re in a hurry, the freezer can work its magic in about 2 hours.

9 ) When it’s time to indulge, remove the cold nougat from the pan. Place it on a cutting board.
Spray a knife with nonstick baking spray and cut the nougat into 1-1/2 inch cubes. These squares can be sticky, so store them in the refrigerator or freezer between coated wax or parchment paper.

Tips for Candy Crafting Success:

  1. Never attempt this candy creation without reliable nonstick paper like wax or parchment.
  2. Coat your paper with nonstick spray or a thin layer of shortening for easier peeling.

Chill Before Peel:

  • Place the nougat in the freezer before attempting to peel off the paper. Cold candy is your friend in this sticky situation.
    Paper Troubles? Slice It Off!
  • If your paper insists on sticking, don’t hesitate to slice off a thin layer with the paper and discard it.


Congratulations, you’ve successfully created a batch of heavenly Nougat candies that are not only visually stunning but also a symphony of flavors and textures. Share this delightful treat with friends and family, or savor each square slowly, allowing the sweetness to linger on your palate. Until our next sweet adventure, happy baking!
