COMMENT:
Maybe the lesson learned from the previous comment is to ALWAYS taste a dish before serving to a guest and make it far enough ahead so that you can provide an alternative if necessary.

REVIEW: recipe rating
They were very hard....I wouldnt recomend melting the caramel at all.....just melt the chocolate and drizzle over the pecans and caramel....needless to say I was pretty dissapointed and embarrased when the caramels were rock hard and stuck to my guests teeth! and I followed the directions carefully.
