Reminiscent of Raisinets (chocolate covered raisins). I have not tried this recipe, posted for safekeeping. From the California Raisin Marketing Board. Update: I made this weekend. It wasn't quite what I was looking for so I will keep tweaking (Let me know if you have suggestions.) Next time I think I will add 1 cup of chocolate chips in with the raisins and pecans. I will let the chocolate mixture cool first and then mix in the chocolate chips, raisins and pecans. I may reduce the quantity of pecans.
