How to make chocolate pecan candy
This sweet treat makes a great gift. Simply line a pretty box with wax paper fill it with squares of Velvety Pecan Candy, and tie with a ribbon. Happy Holidays! Makes about 3 dozen squares, 3 pounds.
Line 15x10 inch jelly roll pan with wax paper. Lightly grease wax paper with cooking spray.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake pecans in a single layer in a shallow pan 8-10 minutes or until toasted and fragrant, stirring halfway through.
Don't know if you can tell the difference, but these are toasted. A little darker, don't try one..you won't stop eating them!
Coarsely chop candy coating and place in a microwave safe bowl.
Add sweetened condensed milk and salt.
Microwave candy coating, sweetened condensed milk and salt mixture at HIGH 3 to 5 minutes, stirring at 1-minute intervals.
4 minutes...it's smooth and ready!
Stir in pecans.
Spread in an even layer in prepared pan. Cover and chill 2 hours or until set.
Take candy out onto a cutting board, and cut into squares.
Store, covered, at room temperature. Enjoy!
