Sweet, salty and crunchy all combine in this easy 4-ingredient chocolate candy recipe that's perfect for gift-giving and entertaining. Note that this candy will soften slightly while at room temperature if you're planning to give some as a gift.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
  • 3 (4-oz.) bars bittersweet chocolate baking bars
  • 3 (4-oz.) white chocolate baking bars
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt*

How to Make It

  1. Place pecans in a single layer on a baking sheet.

  2. Bake at 350° for 8 to 10 minutes or until toasted.

  3. Line a 17- x 12-inch jelly-roll pan with parchment paper. Break each chocolate bar into 8 equal pieces. (You will have 48 pieces total.) Arrange in a checkerboard pattern in jelly-roll pan, alternating white and dark chocolate. (Pieces will touch.)

  4. Bake at 225° for 5 minutes or just until chocolate is melted. Remove pan to a wire rack. Swirl chocolates into a marble pattern using a wooden pick. Sprinkle evenly with toasted pecans and salt.

  5. Chill 1 hour or until firm. Break into pieces. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator up to 1 month.

  6. *3/4 tsp. kosher salt may be substituted.
