  1. Melt dark chocolate in microwave with 2 tablespoons milk.  I broke one dark chocolate bar into pieces and then added 2 tablespoon milk in a small bowl.  I set the microwave to 50% power and microwaved for 20-30 seconds.  Once the chocolate was hot enough I stirred it until it melted all the way.  
  2. Pour the melted chocolate over the pecans and coat them well.  
  3.  Add powdered mixture to bowl in spoonfuls mixing pecans.  The ones that got coated I removed right away.  PS I've tried the bag method  (dumping it into a zip lock bag), but it seems the chocolate just absorbs the powdered sugar.  The stirring method gives you more control.  
  4. Let harden by laying flat on parchment paper on a pan in the fridge for 2-4 hours.  Then they are ready!  Happy finger licking, chocolate popping fun!
