In our house, we are all about desserts. Rarely does a day go by that we don't have something sweet on the counter to grab and enjoy. Some of our favorites are Easy Popcorn Balls, Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, and No Bake Cookie Dough Bites! I will admit that this isn't the best for my diet, but resisting something sweet and delicious is nearly impossible for me.
As a mom and as a teacher, I like to find treats that I can make and take on-the-go easily. These Chocolate Pecan Bites are perfect for this. When I want to treat my students for a special occasion, these are so easy to hand out and they are conveniently individually wrapped in the muffin liners.

And let's not forget about the orange ones for your next Halloween party. The possibilities are endless, which makes this dessert a great choice any time of the year.

Ingredients for Chocolate Pecan Clusters
- white chocolate chips
- milk chocolate chips
How to Make No Bake Chocolate Pecan Bites
To get things started, we need to prepare our mini muffin tin. Place liners in the tin and set it aside.
Next, we are going to put the white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. It is important to heat them 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between. Depending on the power of your microwave, you could easily scald them. If this happens, they will not make the smooth, creamy consistency that we need, and they will have a burnt taste.
Now let's add those pecans!
Stir them in until they are all coated with the melted white bark.
Grab your prepared mini muffin tin, and fill each liner about 3/4 full with the white chocolate pecan mixture.
To allow the white chocolate to harden, place the pan in the refrigerator for about an hour. If you are running short on time, don't be afraid to use your freezer. Just keep checking to see if they are set. And if you are like me, in the middle of a Wisconsin winter, it is always convenient to use God's refrigerator...the good old outdoors!
When the bottom layer is hardened, it is time to prepare your chocolate chips. In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt milk chocolate chips in 30-second intervals, stirring often.
Using a spoon, spread a thin layer of milk chocolate over the pecan bites.
Chances are, they won't be covered completely. Gently shaking the pan should even out the chocolate perfectly.
And now for the finishing touch! Sprinkle M&Ms on top, creating bite-sized delicious masterpieces!
Once again, chill until the chocolate is hardened using your refrigerator, freezer, or that wonderful winter weather!
Once your Chocolate Pecan Clusters are set, gently pop them out of the muffin tin. These sweet treats travel well and are a perfect dessert to serve for an occasion!
