These chewy caramel clusters that are coated in rich dark chocolate are what I needed today. I was not feeling okay, this pandemic is causing me more stress and to worry too much. I badly needed a pick me up and these luscious, perfectly sweet treats were my escape. This is a no-fuss, super simple, easy and quick to assemble. With only minimal ingredients that are always available, you can be able to make this any time, any day. For all the chocolate, caramel, and pecan lovers out there (like myself) these delish treats will undoubtedly make your day. I made batches of this caramel clusters today and I am planning to pack them and give them to friends and family.
1 14oz package individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons water
2 cups chopped pecans
1 pound dark chocolate, broken into small pieces
HOW TO MAKE PECAN CARAMEL CLUSTERS
Step 1: In a microwave-safe bowl, add the caramels, butter, and water. Place inside the microwave for about 3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until smooth. Then, stir in the pecans.
Step 2: By spoonfuls, drop the caramel pecan mixture onto a parchment paper.
Step 3: Place in the fridge to freeze for at least 15 to 20 minutes.
Step 4: In another microwave-safe bowl, add the chocolate and melt on high for about 1 to 2 minutes. Stir every 15 seconds until melted and smooth.
Step 5: Take the caramel cluster out the fridge and using a fondue fork, dip each cluster into the melted chocolate. Transfer the chocolate-coated clusters on a parchment paper to dry.
Step 6: You can chill them if needed before serving.
You can use varieties of chocolate from semi-sweet to milk chocolate or use dark chocolate like what I did for this recipe.
