Pecan Clusters

When my cousin Gretchen suggested today’s recipe for Pecan Clusters she said, “I make them and people love them…I don’t even like pecans but these rock!” I hope this Gourmet Gab family favorite rocks your holiday season, as well!

  • 4 cups toasted pecans (about 1 lb.)
  • Boiling water
  • 4-5 Tbsp. butter
  • 2-3 large Hershey chocolate bars
  • Salt


  1. Pour pecans into a colander. Pour boiling water over them 2-3 times.
  2. Melt butter in pan and add pecans.
  3. Toast on a baking sheet in 325 degree oven, stirring every 5 minutes until well toasted. (Recipe says about an hour but that’s a little long! Watch! They burn easily, so turn oven down after first 15 minutes.)
  4. Sprinkle with salt and cool.
  5. Melt Hershey bars slowly either in microwave or double boiler.
  6. Add pecans and coat well with chocolate. Drop in clusters on wax paper. Let cool and enjoy!

Love food. Love self. Love life.
