Chocolate Delights


1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups pecans, ground coarsely in food processor
7 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1/4 tsp. salt
2 extra large egg whites, slightly beaten*
1 tsp. vanilla


Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar,
pecans, cocoa, and salt. Add egg whites and vanilla and stir until mixture is
combined well. Spoon onto lightly oiled foil-lined sheets (or unbuttered
parchment) and bake 12 - 15 minutes or until the tops appear dry and light in
color. Let cool and remove from cookie sheet. Makes about 24 cookies.

*Be sure and use extra large egg whites - I've tried large and cookies don't
turn out as good.

This recipe is from Penzey's 2003 Christmas catalog. It sounds good, I
have not tried it.

This could make a nice addition to your dessert plate and it's one of those
things that's really easy, but looks like it was impressively difficult to
make. :o)


Toffee Butter Crunch

1 cup butter
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
3 tablespoons water
1 cup coarsely chopped blanched almonds, toasted
4 4-1/2-ounce bars milk chocolate, melted
1 cup finely chopped blanched almonds, toasted

Melt butter in a large saucepan. Add sugar, corn syrup, and water. Cook over
medium heat, stirring now and then, to hard-crack stage (300 F on your candy
thermometer) - watch carefully after temperature reaches 280 F. Quickly stir
in coarsely chopped nuts; spread in well-greased 13x9 inch pan. Cool
thoroughly. Turn out on waxed paper; spread top with half the melted
chocolate; sprinkle with half the finely chopped nuts. Cover with waxed
paper; invert; spread again with remaining chocolate. Sprinkle top with
remaining nuts. If necessary, chill to firm chocolate. Break into pieces.
