    Hey, Nikki, I hope to make this for Christmas dessert, but I'm unclear about part of the directions. In the nougat layer you say: "Cool completely and 8-oz. containers of cool whip." Do you mean to add a container of cool whip to the nougat mixture after it cools? Please clarify. Thank you.

  6. Elle

    Can the nougat part be made a day ahead and refrigerated until ready to layer?
