Chocolate Pecan Bark

After some extensive candy making with my mom and niece, I still had leftover chocolate.  Of course, my mom wanted to throw it away and I cried outrage!  I took the bowl from her hands and made a nice plate of pecan chocolate bark with my leftover melted chocolate.  It's so easy a caveman (or Anthony) can do it!  Simple.  Elegant.  Delicious.

This elegant bark takes only 5 minutes to prepare!
1c Ghirardelli 60% cocoa chocolate chips (or darker)
1/4c whole, broken, or chopped unsalted pecans (raw or toasted)
a pinch fine sea salt

1. Optional:  To toast your pecans place them in a preheated 350 degree (F) oven for 10 minutes or until fragrant.  Remove.
2. In a large glass bowl, melt chocolate chips in minute intervals, stirring between each one until completely melted.
3. Place a piece of seran wrap at the bottom of a large flat plate, pan, or baking dish.  Pour the melted chocolate on top of the wrap and spread evenly and thinly with a spatula.
3. Sprinkle with nuts and a tiny pinch of sea salt.  Place in the fridge until hardened.  Remove from the seran wrap and break into bark.  Enjoy!
