Chocolate Nougat Bars

3 cups sugar
3/4 cup corn syrup
3/4 cup water
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 egg whites
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 bags milk chocolate chips (12-ounce bags)

In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar, corn syrup,
water, and salt. Heat, stirring, to boiling, then continue to
cook, using a candy thermometer to monitor the temperature. Beat
the egg whites until they are stiff and form peaks. When the sugar
mixture reaches 270F, (soft-crack), remove from the heat and pour
the mixture in thin streams into the egg whites, blending completely
with a mixer set on low speed.

Continue to mix until the candy begins to harden to the consistency
of dough, about 20 minutes. At this point, add the semisweet
chocolate chips. When the chocolate is thoroughly blended and the
nougat has thickened, press it into a greased 9x9-inch pan.
Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. With a sharp knife, cut
the candy in half down the middle of the pan. Then cut across into
7 segments to create a total of 14 bars.

Melt the milk chocolate chips in the microwave for 2 minutes on
half power, stirring halfway through the heating time. Melt
completely, but be careful not to overheat. Resting a bar on a
fork (and using your fingers if needed), dip each bar into the
chocolate to coat completely and place on wax paper. Cool till
firm at room temperature, 1 to 2 hours.

Makes 14 candy bars.
