From my house in Nelson, BC Canada, I can see Kokanee Glacier Park and it gives me inspiration for many things. I decided to name these Kokanee Circles after it. My kids love to get involved in making these.
2 1/4 cups of pecans
Put pecans in a food processor and process until very fine.
1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups arrowroot powder
2 tablespoons Rapadura or Sucanant (whole cane sugar)
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
Add all of the above ingredients to the pecans and process until well blended. Press into a 9” x 13” glass pan and bake at 350F (180C) degrees for 15 minutes.
1 cup butter
2/3 cup honey
¾ cup Rapadura or Sucanant
Place the above ingredients into a pot and melt together on medium heat until it starts to boil. Boil for 5 minutes while stirring and then take off burner.
5 tablespoons of whipping cream
Pour this sweet mixture on top of pecan crust and bake again for 20 minutes.
Right when you take it out of oven, sprinkle with: 1 1/2 cups of good bittersweet chocolate chips or cut-up from a bar.
Let cool completely and cut into squares or use a cookie cutter and cut out into circles.
