How To Make microwave pecan roca

  • 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.
