Prep:

10 Min

Cook:

10 Min

Method:

Microwave

Ingredients

1/2 c
toasted chopped pecans
1 c
sugar
1/4 c
water
1 tsp
salt
1/2 c
butter, unsalted (no substitutions)

TOPPING

3/4 c
semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 c
very finely chopped toasted pecans

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Sprinkle 1/2 cup nuts in a 9" square on Sil-pat or buttered baking sheet, foil, or waxed paper
2
Butter the top edges of a 2-qt. microwave safe casserole - I use my batter bowl with handle.
3
Put in butter, salt, sugar and water. DO NOT STIR!
4
Put the dish in the microwave on high for 6 to 8 minutes. Check mixture at 7 minutes and continue cooking a minute at a time until the mixture just begins to turn tan. You need to watch it here and remember DON'T STIR!
5
Pour the mixture over the pecans. Immediately sprinkle the chocolate on top and let sit for 1 minute.
6
After 1 minute use a spatula to spread the chocolate. Sprinkle remaining nuts over the top - press down as much as you can. Put in refrigerator to cool completely. Break into small pieces.
