Step 7: Prepare Toppings
I chose pecans (because I had them in the fridge), confectioner's sugar (because I suspected that would be my favorite), unsweetened cocoa (because that's pretty traditional), and pistachios (because I thought the green color would be cool. It was.)
Get that grinder back out and mash up your nuts. Or go at them with a knife. The grinder made them a little finer than I really wanted. Next time I'll put them in a plastic bag and smash them into tiny bits with a wine bottle. (Hey, use what you've got, right?)
The cocoa and powdered (confectioner's) sugar should be sifted before use to get rid of their inherent lumpiness.
