Sweet, chewy and crunchy, all at the same time -- these bite-size treats go perfectly with a cup of coffee after a meal.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange pecans in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet; toast in oven until fragrant, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven (leave oven on); set aside 36 pecans on baking sheet. Finely chop remaining pecans (for about 1/4 cup); set aside.

  • When pecans are cool enough to handle, make 12 clusters by arranging 2 pecans vertically, side by side, below 1 pecan placed horizontally. Gently flatten each caramel; place 1 on top of each cluster. Bake clusters 5 minutes. Remove from oven (leave oven on).

  • Place 1 piece of chocolate on top of each cluster. Return to oven; bake until chocolate begins to melt, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from oven. With the back of a spoon, gently spread chocolate over caramel without completely covering it.

  • Sprinkle clusters with reserved chopped pecans. Refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes. Bring to room temperature before serving.

I agree, the caramel was way to hard to eat, and the pecans were fairly dry. Not a good recipe!

When following the directions as written the clusters turned out perfect for us. We will be making more and many have already enjoyed the holiday treat. I love when a recipe really works like the recipe says it will. Thanks to you all for this keeper!!!!!

Caramel was too hard to eat and pecans ended up very dry.
