How to make coffee nougat
Chop 250 g of dark chocolate, put it in a glass bowl and melt in a double boiler or microwave
Once melted, brush the inside of the toprone mold with chocolate, then refrigerate for 10 minutes, then resume the operation by spreading the chocolate evenly over the entire surface of the mold. Place in the fridge and let it rest for 10 minutes.
Now chop the white chocolate, put it in a glass bowl and melt in the microwave or in a bain-marie
Toast the hazelnuts in a pan
Put the instant coffee and sugar in a bowl, add the boiling water and mix until creamy.

Then add the melted white chocolate and finally the toasted hazelnuts. Mix until you get a homogeneous mixture.
Pour everything into the nougat mold. Now melt the remaining dark chocolate in a bain-marie and pour it on the cream so as to cover the base of the mold.
Place nougat of the dead with coffee in the refrigerator and let it harden well for at least 6 hours. Now clean the edges all around with a knife so that the air can pass between the mold and the chocolate and create a vacuum necessary to remove the nougat from the mold. Then just turn the mold upside down on a cutting board to remove the coffee nougat of the dead.
Then cut into slices and serve.
