Salty Chocolate-Pecan Candy

Another delicious recipe from Pam. This candy is really addicting!

1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
3 (4-oz.) bars semi-sweet chocolate baking bars ( I use Ghirardelli brand)
3 (4-oz.) bars white chocolate baking bars (again Ghirardelli brand)
1 tsp. coarse sea salt

* You can find Ghirardelli baking bars in only Kroger and Schnucks in Memphis.

Roast pecans on a cookie sheet in a 350 degree oven for about 5 -8 minutes.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Break each chocolate bar into 8 equal pieces. (You will have 48 pieces total.) Arrange in a checkerboard pattern (brown and white) on the cookie sheet.

Pieces will touch.

Bake at 225 degrees for 5 minutes or until chocolate is melted. Remove pan to wire rack. Swirl chocolates into a marble pattern using a wooden pick. (I use a skewer.) Sprinkle evenly with toasted pecans and salt.

Chill 1 hour in frig. or until firm. Break into pieces. Store in sealed container in frig up to 1 month.

AWESOME AND EASY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
