cups chopped toasted pecans - divided
tablespoon light corn syrup
cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Spread 1 cup of pecans into a 9" circle on a lightly greased baking sheet. I usually just spray it with Pam. Bring sugar & next 3 ingredients to a boil in a heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook until mixture is golden brown & a candy thermometer registers 290 - 310 degrees (about 15 minutes). Pour mixture over pecans on baking sheet. Sprinkle with chocolate chips & let stand for 30 seconds. Spread melted chips evenly over top. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup pecans. Chill 1 hour or until chocolate sets. Break into bite size pieces. Store in airtight container. Makes 1 1/2 lbs.
