Top Review by Claire de Luna

I tried this after I realized it would only take a few minutes and I had the caramels on hand. I had a few pecan halves and some chopped pecans. My husband and I thought the pecan halves were very pretty, but we liked the test best with the chopped pecans. I scooped out a tablespoon and place the caramel on top. When it came out of the oven, I flipped them over and coated both sides with the chopped pecans. Either way, a wonderful treat!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 26 caramels
  • 104 pecan halves (about 2 cups)
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Grease a large cookie sheet well.
  3. Arrange 4 pecan halves in a cluster, flat side down on cookie sheet.
  4. Repeat with the rest of the pecan halves.
  5. Place one caramel on top of each cluster.
  6. Heat in oven until caramels are softened, about 4-6 minutes.
  7. Press caramels flat with the bottom of a buttered spatula (you may have to butter the spatula after every 2 or 3 caramels, or it will get very sticky).
  8. Remove caramels evenly onto waxed paper.
  9. Melt chocolate in double boiler, or in microwave on medium high, stirring every 25 seconds until just melted.
  10. Spoon over caramel-pecan clusters.
  11. Let cool a few hours.
