Turtle Pie

I know I keep saying how much I love every pie we've sharing this week,(Pineapple Cream Pie with Macadamia Nuts, Black Forest Pie, and Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pie) and it's true, but I really, really, REALLY LOVE this pie! 

 My all-time favorite candy is Turtles, I love caramel & pecans together, and then you throw in some goodness, you've got me!!  So when I saw this pie I knew I needed to make it for pie week!  It is so good I have to confess I had 2 bites for breakfast this morning....oops!:)  But I call it a victory because I didn't eat the entire pie!

Turtle Pie
1 pie crust, baked according to package directions
1 bag (11 oz.) caramels
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 bag (16 oz.) pecan halves
1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter

In a medium sized sauce pan combine caramels and whipping cream.  Melt caramels over medium heat, stirring constantly so cream doesn't scorch.  Remove from heat and stir in pecan halves.  Pour into baked pie crust.

Melt chocolate and butter in microwave safe bowl at 30 second intervals, stirring in between until smooth.  Drizzle over pecans and place in fridge until set, about 1 hour.  Serve!
