    I've been trying to find a softer nougat recipe but google is not being very helpful. I'm looking for a recipe that will produce a texture similar to the nougat in a Snickers bar. Any help or direction would be extremely helpful.

    Look for either of Peter Greweling's books, either the Professional Chocolates or the At Home version, he has recipes for a Snicker bar or Three Musketeer's type of soft nougat.  They both work very well.

    If you undercook the sugar, it'll give you a softer nougat, overcook, harder nougat. Even 4 degrees under will give a completely different nougat texture.
