    Your walk-in should *not* be at 41 degrees. That is technically temperature danger zone... it should be maximum 40... but idealy, 33-39 degrees.

    Chris: "The nougat is perfect."
    Gaby: "You don't have to change anything about the nougat."
    Claire: "I trust Chris and Gaby but I'm going to make a whole new nougat anyway."

    Milky Way packaging is so much nicer in the uk , we don’t have the caramel though, if they had caramel they are called mars bars

    Claire saying “I don’t think this will be that hard” a minute in. I look at the length of the vid again... 40mins, I think it’s gonna be way hard.

    Milkyway Midnight is the superior Milkyway. And that’s what she made (inadvertently).
    I wish someone would’ve pointed it out. They would’ve looked identical!

    I'm not at all interested in cooking. But I like watching Claire do these name brand snacks and candies. Here is why I think Claire is probably one of the best chefs in the industry is due to the fact while she may struggle with these things in the beginning but by the end of the video she is usually victorious. And I have a feeling that this type of video is "clickbait" to get people like me to watch and maybe watch other content on the channel. And seriously, would you go to a five star restaurant in NYC and request the chef make his or her own version of a Milky Way bar (or other favorite snack)? You'd most likely get laughed out of the place.
    That being said, I do enjoy the series and have watched other content on the channel. I haven't subscribed as of yet. I watch more photography/photoshop videos (photographer here) and dabble in tech.
    So my TheXvid feed is more in line with my interests. Good video though. Great series. I'd much rather see content like this than the scripted drama of "reality" shows. TLC I'm looking at you.

    How could he not put plastic over the nougat/caramel? Did you see how that upset Claire Fromthebonappetittestkitchen? He'll be beating himself up for that later.

    Wait, what apparently US milky way bars are what in Europe is sold as Mars. I was so confused about the caramel part for a bit. What we in Europe call Milky Way is 3 Musketeers in the US

  • jebusgod

    Milky Way is different in the UK, we don't have the caramel in it. how is this not just a Mars bar?

    note to self watch all of the video before commenting, did not know the USA didn't have Mars bars.....mind blown
