Aren't these pretty enough to serve over the holidays? They won't be around after a day or two, but I can always make more. They're easy!
I put one pound of pecan halves into a bowl.
2 TBSP dark cocoa.
3 TBSP real maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
I stirred with a wooden spoon until the ingredients mixed and the nuts were coated.
I spread the gooey nuts on a baking sheet and put them into a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes. I let them cool and broke the chunks up and put them into a lovely antique carnival glass bowl. Pecans like this are worth celebrating!
