I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Who doesn't love the mixture of salt & chocolate?   This is so good.  If you don't care for pecans, substitute with any nut that you like or omit them all together.  This goes a long way and is great for a party.
