  1. great recipe, thanks
  2. You are so right, Juenessa. These are yummy treats, they are so easy to make & they will make such a lovely snack in a pretty dish as something to serve unexpected guests. Since pecans & choc both freeze well, that is my plan & they are ready for use on such an occasion. They will likely also be used to garnish spec desserts. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
  3. Great easy recipe with so many possibilities. I used 4 oz. of chocolate and it covered about 28 pecan halves. I found that if I dipped the round end in the chocolate, they ended up looking like hearts. It would be cute to put one on top of a cupcake for Valentine's day- kind of sophisticated looking as compared to kiddie. They would look wonderful decorating the top of a cake as well. I had a little left over chocolate so I threw in a handful of shredded coconut, mixed it up, kind of shaped it like pyramids, and put that on the wax paper too! Thank you for the fun recipe Juenessa
