Units Scale
  • 12 caramels
  • 48 pecan halves
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil


Heat oven to 225 degrees. 

Line a baking sheet or cookie sheet with parchment paper

Unwrap caramels and place them 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet

Place in the oven for 3-5 minutes or until the caramels are softened and starting to melt. 

Remove caramels from the oven. While they’re still hot, carefully press 4 pecan halves into each caramel. Set aside to cool. 

In a microwave safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and coconut oil (if using). 

Microwave chocolate for 80 seconds, pausing and stirring every 15 seconds. 

Stir chocolate chips until smooth. Spoon 1 heaping tablespoon of melted chocolate over each caramel/pecan cluster. Make a small swirl on the top of each chocolate with your spoon. 

Set aside and allow chocolate to set/solidify. This will take 2-3 hours, depending on the heat and humidity in your house. 

Carefully remove from parchment paper and store in an airtight container lined with a layer of parchment for up to 5 days.
