Last month Fisher Nuts flew the #thinkfisher ambassadors to NYC for an event at Butter with Chef Alex Guarnaschelli.  I am such a fan of Chef Alex.  Her food is always full of beautiful flame yet sophisticated and simple.  She prepared gorgeous recipes for us using Fisher Nuts.  We sampled them all night!  So much fun.

These Ghirardelli melting wafers are amazing.  So easy to get melted chocolate…in a hurry.  I’ve been using them for the last couple of months.  I find them in the baking isle of my grocery store.

Ready for dipping!

You’ll also need some Oreo Cookies and crushed candy cane pieces for baking.  These are great, they don’t melt and they hold their crunch perfectly. Found my bag at World Market.

Dip each cookie into the melted chocolate.  I left 1/3 not dipped, but you can dip the whole cookie if you prefer.

While the chocolate is still melted press pecans on cookie and sprinkle with candy cane pieces.  Let set up for about 15 minutes.

    Jenny, I made these nut today. I did not make the Oreo’s. I was interested in the pecans. They are DELICIOUS!!!! I made 6 batches today. They are GREAT Christmas gifts for anyone who loves pecans! MY pecans had been in the freezer for a bit so I did toast them in the pan before I sugared them. I don’t like the recipes that use egg whites. This one is PERFECT!
    DE-LIC-IOUS!
    THANK YOU for posting!
    LOVE your blog!
