2 tblsp. Vanilla Essence
12 oz. dried Soya Milk
Put the milk, marge and sugar into a thick saucepan and heat, without stirring, on a low heat until it bubbles all over and triples in size.
Keep at this heat for 2 min (if you have a sugar thermometer, it should be 235 F./112.8 C.)

Put everything in a thick bottomed saucepan and heat on a low heat till it bubbles all over and triples in size
Keep at this temperature for 4-5 minutes, stirring constantly.
Pour the toffee over the nougat and freeze for another hour.
Cut into mars bar size pieces and re-freeze until the toffee is solid (this can take a couple of days.)
Melt 1200g of vegan chocolate in a microwave if you have one (3 minutes full power per 100g) or place into a bowl above a saucepan of boiling water till melted.
Coat the bars with chocolate and place onto a greased tray. Re-freeze.
The Marathon Variation (Thermopylae Bars)

These basic nougat and toffee recipes can be used to make a whole range of vegan versions of chocolate bars.
