  • 1 lb.  cut Pecans

Step I

Break or shave (A) into small parts and place in double boiler.  Bring water in double boiler to a boil.  Stir chocolate until melted.

Step II

Now chocolate must be cooled to the correct temperature, which is approximately 75° F.  To cool chocolate pour melted chocolate into large pan.  Smear chocolate back and forth with hands preferably in a cool room.

Step III

Just before the chocolate begins to “set” take 2 lbs. of cut marshmallows and mix the marshmallows into the chocolate with both hands.
