Tuxedo Pecans

FullSizeRender(24)

Nutrient Focus: Pecans: Copper, Alpha-linolenic (Omega-3) acid, & Linoleic (Omega-6) Acid (Be mindful that the White Chocolate Chips do contain Saturated Fat & Added Sugar)

this is a snack/dessert with a little sweetness // my recent love affair with cacao nibs & leftover white chocolate chips from holiday baking inspired me to create these delicious bites // just 12 cents per pecan they are surely going to satisfy that sweet tooth & wallet of yours // I think these are an awesome snack/dessert “meal” prep idea // Since making  these, I have popped 1-2 in my mouth post dinner (when I personally prefer some sweetness!)

Ingredients and Kitchen Tools

  • pecans
  • chocolate chips (your choice- dark, milk, white, no sugar added or dairy free )
  • cacao nibs (for kids, funfetti sprinkles would be great!)
  • microwavable bowl
  • plate
  • parchment paper
  • just to give an idea, I used 10 pecans with 2 Tbsp of chips & I kept the chips close together so the melted amount would stay to one side (easier to dip)

  2. dip pecans into melted chocolate
  3. roll in cacao nibs
  4. lay pecans on parchment paper & place in fridge for 10 minutes to allow for chocolate to harden
  5. enjoy!
