Chocolate-Spiced Pecans

Author Notes

I got the inspiration for this recipe from Betty Crocker's Cookbook. I chose not to add the cloves, but the cinnamon and nutmeg give the pecans a great flavor. The addition of semi sweet chocolate makes it so good! I love to make these, but them in little bags or pint glass jars and give them as gifts. Everyone loves to receive these! —chrissyb
