  • Melt the chocolate in a double boiler and place the pecans in another bowl.
  • Using two forks, dip a date in the melted chocolate, let the excess chocolate drip off and place the date in the bowl of pecans. Turn the date to coat it with pecans. Place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat these steps for all dates.
