  • 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips

  • 48 pecan halves

  • 1 tablespoon turbinado sugar

  1. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

  2. 4 dozen pieces

  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper.

  4. Place chocolate chips in a small glass bowl. Microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on in 20-second intervals until melted, stirring after each interval. (Alternatively, melt in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water.)
