I used roasted almonds and mixed milk and semi-sweet chocolate chips. I agree with SLJOHNS suggestion for the proportion of nuts to chocolate chips. These hardened very nicely in the refrigerator in about 15 minutes. I like the idea of ganache covered nuts; even though delicious they are a little messy on your fingers!
I'm glad I only made enough of these to decorate some cupcakes! They're beautiful delicious and an ideal garnish but this is not for the impatient or for those that don't like gooky fingers. These would be perfect and unique for fancy plated desserts!
Two stars for the basic idea. The pecans will not be sticky if the chocolate chips are increased to one and one-half cups and the cream is eliminated and replaced with one ounce of shaved paraffin melted along with the chips. The pecans will not be sticky and any left over chocolate mixture can be frozen for future use.
