Easy, easy recipe! But don't skip the first step....toasting the pecans before adding the chocolate is what makes this recipe! From Southern Living October 1985 magazine.

I also toasted the pecans stovetop (my oven was busy) & it worked out fine. It sure does make a difference in the taste of the pecan. I lined a cookie sheet with waxed paper & dropped the candies on there & put them in the freezer to harden before I packed them for storage. Next time I make them, I will increase the chocolate, as I like a high chocolate-to-nut ratio. I'd like to also try them with white chocolate. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag-Dec'09.
