Chili Pecan Bar
This is one of my favorites, and I can't take much credit for it. This guy came together after tossing the remnants of a treat I had made from Chef Vivian Howard's book Deep Run Roots with some other things to make a chocolate bark. I have to say it was something special. I adapted the recipe and changed some things, and the Chili Pecan Bar became an instant favorite of mine. It's toasted praline pecans with a blend of flavorful chili spices, robust and mild in heat. Crunchy with the salty and sweet. Yum.
Seriously, go buy that book.
