This is for my friend Katelyn. :)
1 cup chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vegetable shortening
1 bag Kraft caramel squares
Melt chocolate and shortening over low heat until
smooth and creamy. Set aside.
Place three pecans together for each candy, forming a Y,
on parchment paper lined cookie sheets.
Unwrap caramels and place one on each Y.
Bake in 300 degree oven for 7-9 minutes, just
until caramels soften and start to pool.
Remove from heat and let cool.
Chocolate should be easy to stir and thickened slightly.
Swirl chocolate onto each candy.
Don't try to move until everything is set.
