  • 1 12 ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips (or milk chocolate if desired)
  • 1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup pecan pieces
  • pinch salt


  1. In top of double boiler melt the chocolate over hot (not boiling) water; stir a few times to keep smooth. (You can also melt chips in a microwave…be careful not to get “hot spots” and stir often.)

  3. Stir only until smooth.

  4. Turn into pan lined with waxed paper and press into block 1 inch high. (You can use a buttered 9×7 inch pan.)

  5. Chill in refrigerator until firm…about 2 hours.

  6. Turn out of pan; remove waxed paper; cut into serving pieces, store in old fashioned tin container.
