Well, I wasn't planning to 'salt' these until I tasted one and it begged me for salt, and it was right! I know, I know...this seems like an odd time of year to post these. But you know what? There's really no bad time for something that's so quick and easy, tastes like heaven and is even good for us!
Soak the dates in warm water for a few minutes until soft enough to peel off the skin. (My dogs love them so I don't have to toss them in the trash :) I also pitted the dates myself because these weren't pre-pitted (which I recommed if you're making a lot!)
Melt the chocolate and fat over a pan of simmering water.
Stir half of the chocolate into the pecans until the nuts are covered.
Dip the dates in the rest of the chocolate and turn upsidedown until the chocolate sets.
Turn over and fill with the chopped pecan/chocolate mixture and drizzle any remaining chocolate on top.
Sprinkle with sea salt.
