If you can't cut the nougat
For this nougat, you have to use two hands. And chop, press, don't slice. Don't forget to trim the overflow off and the extra wafer paper. If you didn't do a good job rolling out the nougat, here's where you make up for it.
I cut two sizes, one inch by 3 inches and one inch by one and a half inches with a thickness of about one inch.
And remember, if you collapse the whites, make ice cream. I made the last of the nougat ice cream last night. I pitted the cherries and dipped them in untempered chocolate. Yum. If I pitted the cherries, why is the stem still attached? Because I carefully pitted the cherry. I used my hand-dandy cherry pitter and pitted the cherry to one side of the stem and then put the cherry's skin back together and held it all in place with chocolate. Or, even better, fill in the whole that the pitter leaves in the cherry with some homemade marzipan.
