Chocolate-Dipped Pecans

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/chocolate_pecans.html

From EatingWell:  January/February 2013

These chocolate-dipped pecans get an elegant finish from a sprinkling of turbinado sugar. You can use this technique with other nuts to make chocolate-covered nuts too.

4 dozen pieces | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper.
  2. Place chocolate chips in a small glass bowl. Microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on in 20-second intervals until melted, stirring after each interval. (Alternatively, melt in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water.)
  3. Dip half of each pecan into the melted chocolate. Let the excess drip back into the bowl. Place the dipped nuts on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle sugar over the chocolate. Refrigerate until the chocolate is set, about 30 minutes.
