These Chocolate Dipped Pecans are simply delicious! They make an easy, yet elegant appetizer and treat perfect for entertaining and gifts!
Around my house, pecans are the king of all nuts! Bart loves them something fierce and I try my best to keep a bowl of simple roasted pecans around for adding to salads, oatmeal, and even just for quick snacking. But, there are times when I want to make them even more special and give them a quick dip in melted chocolate for good measure!
They really couldn’t be simpler to make which makes them the perfect little treat for me. Especially this time of year!
I begin with those roasted pecans that I mentioned and then dip them in a bit of dark, milk, or semisweet chocolate that I’ve melted with a little coconut oil in the microwave. Once I’ve dipped them, I place them onto a parchment lined rimmed baking sheet and sprinkle with a little bit of Kosher or sea salt as a finishing touch. If you don’t have Kosher or sea salt, you can use whatever salt you have on hand, but the flakes of the Kosher or sea salt just look extra pretty on the pecans, I think.
Once the pecans have completely dried, they look delicious in a bowl on the table for serving, but always make a welcome gift in a bag tied with a pretty ribbon for gifts!
Here’s the super easy Chocolate Dipped Pecans recipe. I hope you love them as much as we do!
