1 cup butter, softened

1 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1-1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips, divided

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1 cup Kraft caramel bits

3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream

48 pecan halves (about 3/4 cup)


Preheat oven to 375°.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture.

Shape dough into 1-in. balls; place in greased mini-muffin cups. Press evenly onto bottoms and up the sides of cups.

Bake 9-11 minutes or until edges are golden brown.

With the back of measuring teaspoon, make an indentation in each cup. Immediately sprinkle with 3/4 cup chocolate chips and chopped pecans. Cool in pans 10 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt caramel bits with cream; stir until smooth. Spoon into cups. Top each with a pecan half. In a microwave, melt remaining chocolate chips; stir until smooth.

Drizzle over pecans. Yield: 4 dozen.
