Dark Chocolate Pecan Patties

Texas pecans are supremely the very best!  Add dark chocolate, and you have a healthy, satisfying treat.  

I like to buy at least 60% dark chocolate chips for that rich strong element.  Buying your pecans at the grocery store is ok, but if you can purchase from a local orchard, that would be primo.   This candy is a snap to create – and will delight your guests or makes a nice neighbor gift for the holidays.
