Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole pecan halves
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 8 ounces chocolate candy coating

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325° F.
  • Melt butter; toss pecans in melted butter. Spread pecans evenly in pan, tossing to cost. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until pecans are perfectly roasted. Drain on paper towels.
  • Melt chocolate candy coating in a double boiler over low heat, making sure that the water does not touch the top pan and does not boil. Add pecans; coat thoroughly. Remove pecans one at a time with a fork, letting excess chocolate drip off. Place on parchment paper or wax paper to cool and harden. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 2 cups.

Notes

I use Ghiradelli Dark Chocolate Melting Wafers.
If you like the contrast of salt with the sweet chocolate coating, you might think about lightly salting the pecans before they are roasted.
