  4. Without washing the blender, place the caramel ingredients (except the almonds) into the blender.  Blend for one minute.
  5. Pour a layer of caramel over the top of the refrigerated nougat, and set the rest to one side. Sprinkle the chopped almonds on top. Refrigerate the nougat/caramel bar.
  6. Now for the chocolate ganache: blend all the chocolate ingredients (you still don’t need to wash the blender for this step) for 1 minute.
  7. Un-mould the nougat/caramel bar and slice into 3 or 4 chunky bars.
  8. Cover the bars with the chocolate and leave to set in the fridge for as long as you can wait!
