You will have enough nougatine to make the fondue four or five times. You can also sprinkle it over ice cream or yogurt, or use to decorate a cake. The nougatine will keep for 1 month in an airtight container at room temperature. If it hardens, simply shake the container to loosen the crumbs.

Transfer any leftover fondue to an airtight container. It will keep for 2 weeks in the refrigerator. Reheat over low heat before serving.
