1/4 pound pecan halves
24 individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
1 teaspoon shortening
1 cup chocolate chips


Heat oven to 300 degrees F. Cover cookie sheet with foil, shiny side exposed. Lightly grease foil with vegetable oil spray.

Place 3 pecan halves in a "Y" shape on the foil. Place 1 caramel candy in the center of each "Y".

Bake just until caramel is melted, about 9-10 minutes. Heat shortening and chocolate chips over low heat just until chocolate is melted.

Spread over candies and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

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: 1 star 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.
