Pecan Clusters A Christmas Favorite!!!

Pecan Clusters

Being from the South, pecans were all around me as a kid. Not surprisingly, I still love them. Combine them with chocolate and you’ve got a crowd pleasin’ fave.


  • 7-ounce jar marshmallow cream
  • 3/4 pound chocolate broken into small pieces ( I would use semi-sweet, Guittard)
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 6-ounce can evaporated milk
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 2 cups pecan halves


Place marshmallow cream and chopped chocolate into a large bowl. Set aside. Combine sugar, milk, and butter in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook for 8 minutes.

Pour over marshmallow and chocolate, stirring until well blended. Stir in pecans. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper. Add pecan halves to tops if you want that look. Either way, they’ll be delicious.
