  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Cover a baking sheet with foil, parchment paper, or waxed paper, and set aside.
  3. Step 3

    To melt the chocolate, place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and cook for 1 minute (preferably on the low setting); stir and return to the microwave and cook, in 20- to 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until the mixture is completely melted, smooth, and fluid. (You can also melt the chocolate in a double boiler .)
  4. Step 4

    Temper the milk chocolate if you like.
  5. Step 5

    Add the cayenne pepper and the coarsely chopped pecans, and stir until everything is well-mixed and the pecans are well-distributed.
  6. Step 6

    Pour the chocolate mixture out onto the prepared baking sheet, and smooth it into an even layer using a spatula or a knife.
  7. Step 7

    While the chocolate is still wet, sprinkle the top with a pinch of crushed red pepper, if desired.
  8. Step 8

    Allow the bark to set completely at room temperature, which can take up to 4 hours, or in the refrigerator, which will take about 15 minutes. Once set, break it into small pieces by hand.
