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

Step-By-Step

1Sprinkle 1/2 cup nuts in a 9" square on Sil-pat or buttered baking sheet, foil, or waxed paper

2Butter the top edges of a 2-qt. microwave safe casserole - I use my batter bowl with handle.

3Put in butter, salt, sugar and water. DO NOT STIR!

4Put 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!

5Pour the mixture over the pecans. Immediately sprinkle the chocolate on top and let sit for 1 minute.

6After 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.
