 2 cups pecan halves
 4 ounces sugar free dark chocolate chopped

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350F and with parchment or a silicone baking mat, line a cookie sheet . In a single layer, spread the pecans out on the mat and bake SEVEN to TEN minutes, until it gets toasted. In clusters of 3 or 4, arrange the pecans , making about TWENTY to TWENTY FOUR clusters.

Over each pecan cluster, drizzle a few teaspoons of caramel , making sure some caramel is touching each of the pecans. In the freezer to set the caramel, place the cookie sheet.
