Lone Musketeer - Soft Chocolate Nougat Cookie

A few weeks ago I had the idea to make a cookie that contained soft chocolate nougat. I wanted it to be similar to a few grocery store candy bars I love, but without the preservatives, artificial ingredients, and terrible chocolate. The cookie hasn't been perfected for the shop yet but I did make these as a special for Work/Shop this past Saturday. Speaking of which, thank you for those of you that came! I was completely sold out by the first half of the show.

I named these "musketeer" (for obvious reasons) but they are a bit different from the candy bar version. The bottom is a chocolate cookie which is topped with a round of milk chocolate nougat, then drizzled with a bit of dark chocolate. I'm so happy they were well received and can't wait to figure out how to make a set for the shop.

If you'd like to make them yourself, I used this chocolate nougat recipe. You can use your favorite chocolate cookie recipe (perhaps this one!) but I went for something with a soft bite to it, like this one.
