This is such an easy recipe, but it’s such a great snack! Even though I used 100% chocolate in this recipe, it’s still delicious. All 42 chocolate covered pecan halves went super fast.
Step-By-Step Instructions for Chocolate Covered Pecan Recipe
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Lay the pecans in a single layer on parchment paper. Toast for 7 minutes – don’t overcook as they burn easily.
2. Let the pecans cool. Then place the dark chocolate (I used Tcho 99) in a bowl and melt in the microwave – I found 2 minutes on high to be perfect. You can also melt the chocolate in a bowl above hot water.
3. Dip the toasted pecans in the melted chocolate with a fork and carefully place back on the parchment paper to set. Sprinkle spices on top of the chocolate covered pecan pieces – I sprinkled some pieces with powdered ginger, some with chili powder, some with vanilla salt (I really liked that one), some with cinnamon (another favorite), and some with nutmeg.
4. Leave the pieces to set in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
