While the truffles are freezing, place pecans in a sandwich bag and use a rolling pin to break them into fine pieces.   Place the chocolate chips in a small bowl and melt them in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring between each interval.

Remove whiskey truffles from the freezer and dip each one into the melted chocolate chips, using a fork to assure that each one is completely coated.
