Kraft Kitchen Tips!
This recipe makes enough so that you can serve these petits fours at a holiday party and still have enough to include 1 serving (2 cakes) in each of several gift baskets.
How to Caramelize the Pecans
Place nuts in medium skillet. Add 2 Tbsp. sugar; toss to evenly coat. Cook on medium-low heat 10 min. or until sugar is melted and nuts are evenly coated. Immediately spread onto foil-covered baking sheet. Cool completely.
The chocolate frosting and glaze can be prepared ahead of time. Store in separate covered containers in refrigerator up to 24 hours before using. Remove from refrigerator and let stand at room temperature to soften before using. If desired, place glaze in microwaveable bowl and microwave on HIGH 1 to 2 min. or until desired consistency, stirring after each minute.
