    Claire is a beautiful example of a non-feminist woman. The way she just sort of dances with interaction and conversation is endearing.

    Did someone say nougat?

  • UsernamesForDummies

    The only candy bars I like are Milky Way. And I’ve always been addicted to the Nougat part. Can’t wait to see how Claire gets that done...I always thought the nougat tasted malty, a bit like Ovaltine.

    Here's a question for any budding candy makers in the comments.
    Would it be possible to make the nougat a little salty to complement the caramel? I imagine it would taste awesome.
    And could a little bit of almond in the chocolate also go well with a salted caramel combo?

    I think in some ways these are the most interesting. I don't really care about the attitude (you have a dream job for a certain set of people). I do love your process which is fascinating. Your process of working the problem (analysis, modification, and consolidation of each of the evolved elements) is great.

    This is so weird for me (aussie viewer). In Aus, a milky way is just nougat in chocolate and nothing else. What I see here in this episode is a Mars Bar. So weird

    Wow that’s weird. Here in the uk a Milky Way bar only has the nougat and no caramel. With caramel would be a Mars Bar.

    I live in Canada, and I actually got up after this and walked to buy a MARS bar, my craving was so real. Had no idea all those candy bars were the same thing.
    So product placement is definitely working. Also I love the show! Great job! Haha 😁😂

    I'm going to stop watching Claire or anything with Claire because someone asked her to marry her and bought her a crazy sweet ring. I can only watch single claire bake. Deal breaker, hope you have a happy life Claire.
