I spotted this recipe over on The Novice Chef a couple weeks ago and immediately bookmarked the recipe. I mean, who doesn’t love caramel, pecans, and chocolate?? This recipe is perfect for those of us that aren’t candy-makers but like to pretend we are ;). Seriously, a 5 year old could make these, assuming they can use the microwave haha! It all starts with a layer of buttery club crackers. Off to a good start, right? Then, layers of melted caramel, toasted pecans, and more club crackers. Topped off with melted dark chocolate and more pecans!. It’s as rich (and perfect) as it sounds! Give it a try! Enjoy!

{Easy} Pecan Caramel Squares

30 club crackers
1 (11 oz) bag caramels, melted according to package directions
5 oz chopped pecans, toasted
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Line a 8 or 9 inch square pan with foil. Spray with nonstick spray.
2. Arrange half of the crackers in the bottom of prepared pan.
3. Pour one-third of the melted caramel over crackers in pan and spread caramel into an even layer.
4. Sprinkle half of pecans on top of caramel and then top pecans with one-third more of the caramel on top.
5. Top caramel layer with the remaining crackers. Pour remaining caramel on top of crackers and spread caramel into an even layer.
6. In small microwave safe bowl, microwave chocolate chips uncovered for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth.
7. Pour over caramel and spread evenly. Top with remaining pecans. Let cool until chocolate has hardened, about 1 hour in the fridge.
