Ingredients

  • 2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 cups butter melted
Garnish:
  • 40 pecan halves
Topping:
  • 340 g white chocolate finely chopped
  • 340 g semisweet chocolate finely chopped
  • 2 cups whipping cream (35%)
  • 3 tablespoons orange-flavoured liqueur

Method

In bowl, combine chocolate wafer crumbs, pecans and sugar; stir in butter until moist- ened. Pat into parchment paper–lined 13- x 9-inch (3.5 L) cake pan. Bake in 325F (160C) oven for 15 minutes. Let cool in pan on rack.

Topping: Place white chocolate and semisweet chocolate in separate bowls. In saucepan, bring cream to boil; pour 1 cup cream over each chocolate. Let stand for 2 minutes; stir until melted.

Divide orange liqueur between bowls. Cover and let semisweet chocolate mixture stand at room temperature. Cover and refrigerate white chocolate mixture, stirring occasionally, until firm, 1-1/2 to 2 hours.

With mixer, beat white chocolate mixture at low speed just until lightened in colour and texture, about 30 seconds. Spread over base. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.

Repeat beating with semisweet chocolate mixture. (If too firm, warm slightly over warm water.) Spread over white chocolate mixture.

Garnish: With tip of sharp knife, mark into 40 bars; place pecan half in centre of each. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate until firm, about 4 hours. Cut into bars. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 1 month.)
