I just have to give in to my sweet tooth every now and then, especially around the holidays. I try to save the rich calorie-laden treats for when we have parties and get-togethers so I don’t end up eating them all by myself! These are always a winner!
Caramel Pecan Candies
- 48 pecan halves
- 24 caramel squares
- 1-2 c. semisweet chocolate chips
- sea salt for sprinkling (optional)
Preheat the oven to 325.
Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.
Flatten the caramels with your hand. The kids love to help with this!
Place two pecan halves, side by side, on the wax paper.
Place a flattened caramel on top of the nuts, repeat until all pecans and caramels are used.
Bake for about 5 minutes.
Remove from heat.
While the nuts are cooling you can melt the chocolate and line another cookie sheet with was paper.
Place a spoonful of melted chocolate on the new cookie sheet.
Top with a caramel/nut cluster.
Repeat until all the nuts are moved to the new cookie sheet.
Drizzle the remaining chocolate over each cluster. You can also melt some white chocolate to drizzle over for a little added decoration.
Sprinkle with sea salt.
Chill until hardened.
