I made these for Valentine’s Day, but they are great anytime of the year. Store them in any air tight container for several weeks. I’m sure they will stay fresh longer than they will stay around.
- 1 bag of white chocolate candy melts (I used Ghirardelli Candy Making and Dipping White Melting Wafers found in the baking section of the grocery.)
- 2 cups of roasted pecan halves
I placed my pecan halves on pan and roasted them in the oven at 350 for 10 minutes.
I was going for the quickest route so I put my wafers in a microwavable bowl and heated them for 30 seconds on medium power. I stirred them and returned them for 15 second intervals until they were completely melted. (Stir the chocolate between each 15 second interval.)
After the chocolate was nice and smooth, I added the pecans to the bowl. I mixed well so all of the pecan halves were coated in the chocolate. I then dropped the mixture by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet that was lined with wax paper. I then put them in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes to set up and cool.
Once they were set, I was able to fill a Valentine tin with them. I picked up this Valentine tin for 1.00 at the Dollar Tree. (YES…I am cheap!)
Hugs and kisses this Valentine’s Day, y’all!!
