Pecan Buttercrunch

Chocolates - Week 7 June 22nd

These recipes are copied straight from my notes in my individual production pastry class. I’m putting them here on just a pinch for my own posterity.

While I havn't tried, I will venture to guess that you can simply use dipping chocolate on the outside of this stuff, instead of tempering chocolate yourself. I like tempering, but I know it can be a hassle for the everyday home chef. This stuff is *bleep*ing delicious.
