3 cups chopped pecans, toasted

TOPPING:
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

In a large saucepan, melt 1/3 cup butter over medium heat; stir in the cookie crumbs. Press into an ungreased 9-in. square baking dish. Bake at 325° for 10-12 minutes or until set. Cool on a wire rack.


Meanwhile, in a small saucepan , melt caramels and remaining butter over low heat. Stir in the pecans. Pour over crust. Cool.


For topping, in a small saucepan, combine the chocolate chips, butter, cream and corn syrup. Cook and stir over low heat until smooth. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Pour over caramel layer. Cool on a wire rack. Refrigerate until chocolate hardens.


Let candy stand at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before cutting into 1-in. squares. Store in the refrigerator.

Notes

Sweet and chewy, these yummy layered squares are a great sweet treat. I have also made this recipe in a 9-inch pie pan and cut it in very small pieces. They're so rich, you'll savor every bite.
