Ingredients

  • 4 oz. 110 g dark chocolate with a minimum of 80% cocoa solids
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp (3 g) licorice powder
  • 16 oz. 30 g chopped pecans

Instructions

Instructions are for 15 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Melt the chocolate in a sauce pan on low heat or in a microwave oven. Stir in vanilla and licorice. Let cool for a few minutes until the chocolate begins to thicken. It should not be too liquid.
  2. Pour onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet or tray and sprinkle the nuts on top. Let cool to set completely. Once set, crack into about 15 pieces. Store in the fridge in a tightly sealed container.

Tip!

These thins are best when served the same day. (Licorice powder may make the chocolate look a little grainy after a while.) The pecans are tasty raw or dry roasted—try it both ways!

    I think that I would rather use cinnamon. (I saw another recipe where you could substitute cinnamon for licorice powder.)
    I've never seen licorice powder in the stores where I live.
