A nunt is a pastry originating from Jewish cuisine which resembles nougat or brittle. The sweet treat is predominantly served at the Jewish celebration of Purim, where homemade foods and sweets are customarily given to neighbors and friends. This nougat recipe is made from just three ingredients – honey, nuts and sugar – all boiled together. The best part is you won't have to run around town looking for crazy ingredients. It's simple and fast and perfect for mishloach manot.
