Enjoy! Will make approximately 48 pieces.

Ingredients

1 package caramels
1 package candy kisses
7 ounces pecan halves

Instructions

Peel the wrappers off the caramels and kisses. Set aside. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. On a cookie sheet put 3 pecan halves in a group. Make several groups at least 1/2-inch apart from each other. Put 1 caramel on each group of pecan halves. Place in the oven for 5 minutes. The caramels will not melt but will soften. Remove from the oven. Carefully press the caramels around, over and under the pecans. You can remove from the cookie sheet to do this step. Next, put the pieces back on the cookie sheet. Put the chocolate kiss on top of the cramel, pecans. Place cookie sheet in the oven for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. With a knife, spread the chocolate over the mixture. Chill until firm. Layer into a tin or Rubbermaid container and cover each layer with wax paper.
