“Whatever She’s Got” is one of my favorite songs right now. Whenever it comes on the radio, I can’t help but turn up the volume and roll down the windows. It’s the perfect song for a Friday night, and Saturday night, and Monday morning…. Or anytime really!
I’m a huge fan of sweet and savory. Kinda like the girl in the song, amiright? This dessert has both. It’s also super easy, and a huge crowd pleaser. Also, feel free to swap out ingredients to fit whatever you enjoy most. I love pecans so I wanted to make sure that they were included. But, if you want to add another kind of nut, feel free. I think cashews would be great in this recipe.
Being this is the first edition of Bake & Listen, I’ve decided to go easy on you all. You really don’t have to bake anything, but you have to be very attentive to a bowl in the microwave or a double boiler. We’re makin’ candy, ya’ll!
2 bags Nestle Dark Chocolate Chips
1 oz bag of baking pecans
4 oz Heath bits
Handful of butter snap pretzels
10 Oreos with the cream removed
Remove cream from Oreo cookies. I don’t care what you do with the leftover white stuff. I’ll look away now. Okay I’m back. Place chocolate cookies, pecans, pretzels and heath bits in a bag and smash away. Make sure everything is broken up to your satisfaction.
Now take the chocolate and dump both bags into the microwavable bowl and microwave 30 seconds at a time for 2 minutes and stir in between. Make sure you don’t burn the chocolate. You could also do this with a makeshift double boiler. When I was little my mom would always set a glass measuring cup over the side of a pot of boiling water. I haven’t tried this tactic as an adult so I’m not sure if it works.
Anyway, once your chocolate is melted, pour onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread out with a spatula. When it’s even, sprinkle your mixture of goodness evenly over the chocolate. Press down with a spatula. Sprinkle heavily with coarse seal salt. Stick in the fridge or freezer to set. Remove, break up the pieces and serve. I kept the leftovers in the fridge, since the chocolate chips seemed to melt pretty quickly. Enjoy!
