  • Paula Wisniewski, Illinois



  • •72 pecan halves
    24 Werther’s Original Baking Caramels, unwrapped
    •1 tsp shortening
    •1 package (6 oz.) semisweet chocolate chips
Time for preparation: 10
Time for cooking: 10
Number of portions: 24

Heat oven to 300 degrees. Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil, shiny side up; grease with shortening or non-stick spray.

For each candy, place 3 pecan halves in a ‘Y’ shape on the foil. Place one Werther’s Original Baking Caramel in center of each pecan ‘Y’.

Bake just until caramel is melted (9-10 minutes).

Heat shortening and chocolate chips over low heat (microwave 1-3 minutes, stirring every 20 seconds) or in a double-boiler, stirring constantly, just until chocolate is melted.

Spread chocolate mixture over candies, leaving ends of pecans uncovered.

Refrigerate just until chocolate is firm, about 30 minutes.
