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!

    do you to use the licorice powder
  3. Keri
    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.

    1/6 oz of chopped pecans? That would be what - one tiny little piece?

    The Pecan Chocolate Thins look intriguing, but like Wendy, I am also questioning the nonsensical amount of pecans. That was in October of 2018 and I'm surprised you haven't corrected the recipe yet. If you do answer people's questions, it would be helpful to others if you would please post your answers.
