Thank goodness chocolate isn’t one my family’s restrictions! There is no artificial junk in these, and they taste absolutely divine. There is something about seeing chocolate chips on top of a chocolate desert that makes my taste testers smile! You could mix these in, but my chocolate lovers are always delighted to get a visual of even more chocolate (even though it is not really that many chocolate chips).
I am always delighted of course, when I make something that is a desert, but still has some good nutritional value. Please keep in mind this is not a low-calorie desert, but has many health benefits due to pecans, see here: http://www.nrjournal.com/article/S0271-5317(06)00127-8/abstract . Pecans offer fiber, phosphorus, magnesium, antioxidants, vitamin E and so much more.
I have been making this recipe for a number of years because it is so quick and only a few ingredients. I have no idea where this recipe came from. I remember someone told me many years ago, they had a flour-less desert that was with chocolate and pecans. I was delighted back then because it required no specialty ingredients.
It is nice to have a few one-bowl recipes, you can whip together in few minutes. In this case, it is my food processor.
