3 large eggs

1 cup light corn syrup

Pinch salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup light brown sugar, packed

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

2 to 4 tablespoons Kahlua (can substitute strong coffee or espresso)

1¾ cups pecan halves (about 7 ounces)

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Melt chocolate in a double boiler. Beat eggs slightly and stir in the corn syrup, salt, vanilla, brown sugar, butter, Kahlua and chocolate. Stir in nuts.
