Course: Dessert
Servings: 12
Author: Countryside Cravings
Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 3 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • Chopped pecans for garnish optional
Instructions
  1. Line a mini muffin tin with mini baking cups.
  2. In a small saucepan melt the chocolate and cream over low heat until smooth.
  3. Fill each muffin tin with 1 teaspoon melted chocolate. Gently tap muffin pan on counter to allow chocolate to spread evenly. Place in the freezer for 5-10 minutes until firm. (Make sure muffin pan is sitting on a level surface)
  4. To prepare the filling place chopped pecans, corn syrup, sugar, butter and cream in a small saucepan. Over medium to medium low heat bring to a boil for 3- 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Let cool until cool enough to touch. Fill each muffin tin with filling (I used slightly more than 1/2 tablespoon for each). Using a lightly buttered finger, carefully press the filling to the edges or use the back of a spoon.
  5. Using the remainder of the melted chocolate top each muffin tin with 1 teaspoon (gently rewarm chocolate until smooth if needed). Gently tap muffin pan on counter to allow chocolate to spread evenly. Top each with some chopped pecans if desired. Chill in freezer until set.
