Ingredients
1 package of Kraft caramels
Ritz crackers
50-60 pecan halves depending on how many caramels are in the bag
Ghiradelli candy making and dipping chocolate or Almond Bark chocolate
plastic wrap
Directions
Pre-heat oven to 250 degrees. Fill a cookie sheet with Ritz crackers. Unwrap Kraft caramels and place one in center of each cracker. Place in oven for 5-15 minutes. Watch carefully until the caramel is soft enough to wrap slightly around the edges of a pecan pushed into the middle. Avoid heating until the caramel completely melts. Pull the cookie sheet out of the oven and press a pecan into each of the caramels. Make a note of the time your oven requires so you can set the timer for the remainder of the cookies. Cool crackers on a piece of plastic wrap stretched out on your counter. Repeat the process with the remainder of your caramels. When the caramels have firmed up, melt the chocolate according to the package directions. Dip each cookie into the chocolate with a spoon or tongs and place back on the plastic wrap. Cool and enjoy. When I have used all the caramels but have crackers left I sometimes use a spoonful of peanut butter with a pecan. No need to melt the peanut butter. A nice decorative touch is to make stripes of white chocolate on top of the cookies or dip some of the cookies in white chocolate and stripe with dark chocolate.
