2.Scrape the nougat into the prepared pan. It will be stiff! Use a rubber spatula to scrape the candy from the sides of the bowl. Spray your hands with nonstick cooking spray and press the candy into a thin, even layer.
3.Place an additional layer of rice paper on top of the nougat to cover it entirely. If you do not have rice paper, skip steps 3 and 4.
4.If your nougat is covered with rice paper, you can weigh it down to compress the nougat evenly. Place a second 9x13 pan on top of your nougat, and place a large book or other heavy object in the pan to weigh it down and provide even compression. Allow the nougat to set overnight.
