Homemade 3 Musketeer Chocolates

Forecast says COLD!!! Can't wait for more snow!!! At this point it is like "whatever . . . just bring it . . ." I really can't complain . . . it could be much worse!!! When I was in Germany the cold was a BITING cold that seemed to seep through the countless layers that I had on and chill right to the bone . . . so I will take the Utah cold anyday! The dry bitter cold! Moving on . . . to chocolate!!! These are super rich and decadent!!! I made these for my YW class and they LOVED them!
Homemade 3 Musketeer ChocolatesRecipe by: Emily

2 1/2 cups Chocolate Chips, use good quality . . . I used Ghiradelli Chocolate Chips
12 oz Carton of Cool Whip
Candy Coating Chocolate

Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave or over a double boiler just until the chocolate is melted. Fold the melted chocolate into the whipped topping with a rubber spatula and mix until the chocolate is incorporated. Poor chocolate into a wax paper lined 9x9 inch pan, spread evenly and freeze until set. Use a cookie cutter to cut out desired shapes after mixture is set and place cut out chocolates onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper and freeze again.
Melt coating chocolate and dip the cut out shapes into chocolate to coat and place back on wax paper to set. Drizzle chocolates with additional chocolate to decorate if desired and allow to set before serving. Enjoy!

Easy Method: Rather than cutting the chocolates into shapes just freeze the chocolate mixture for a half hour and then use a cookie scoop to scoop out chocolates and freeze them on the wax paper lined cookie sheet and then dip chocolates after freezing.

Alternative Chocolate Coating: Use chocolate chips but add a teaspoon or two of oil to it . . .

Hey- tried this recipe but the "nougat" is like chewed gum and is uncut-able. Even after freezing overnight.

What did I do wrong here?
