Yuum! That’s all I could say after I made this batch. These make great gifts for him and for anyone that likes nuts. Actually I don’t even think they have to like nuts to enjoy this treat, just chocolate. Whoever you give ‘em to will love them. They’re that good! Just make sure you save some for yourself!
This pictorial guide will make it easier for you to make this tasty treat. In fact you can make any recipes for chocolate covered nuts or coffee beans the same way.
1. Line baking sheet with wax paper. Add water to bottom of double boiler and bring to simmer. Add chocolate morsels and oil. Stir until smooth.
TIP: You can also melt chocolate in a medium-sized, microwavable bowl instead of the double boiler. Melt chocolate for one minute the first time. Once chocolate morsels show signs of melting stir them until smooth. If the chocolate liquid still has some lumps heat chocolate again in microwave ten seconds more. Stir again until smooth.
2. Keep stirring. Add entire can of pecans. Stir until they are completely coated by chocolate.
3. Remove double boiler from heat. Spray wax paper with cooking spray. Then remove pecans with slotted spoon onto baking sheet. Move pecans around with spoon to separate them so they don’t clump together after hardening.
4. Place in refrigerator for at least a half hour to cool. Remove pecans from sheet into plastic container lined with wax paper. Then seal container and store in room temperature until ready to serve. Keep for a week to two weeks at most.
