Valentines Day

Whenever I think of Valentines day I think of the first Valentines day I had with my husband Andy when we were engaged. For a Valentines present I made him an Ultimate Chocolate Caramel Pecan Pie since his favorite pie is pecan pie and I love to make pies :) I found the recipe on Kraft Recipies.

what you need

3 cups chopped PLANTERS Pecans, divided
1/4 cup  granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 pkg.  (14 oz.) KRAFT Caramels
2/3 cup whipping cream, divided
1 pkg.  (8 squares) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp.  vanilla

make it

HEAT oven to 350°F.
BLEND 2 cups nuts in blender until finely ground, using
pulsing action. Mix with granulated sugar and butter;
press onto bottom and up side of 9-inch pie plate. Bake
12 to 15 min. or until lightly browned. (If crust puffs up
during baking, gently press down with back of spoon.)
Cool completely.
MICROWAVE caramels and 1/3 cup whipping cream
in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2-1/2 to 3 min. or until
caramels are completely melted and mixture is well
blended, stirring after each minute. Pour into crust. Chop
remaining nuts; sprinkle over caramel layer.
COOK chocolate, remaining whipping cream, powdered 
sugar and vanilla in saucepan on low heat just until 
chocolate is completely melted, stirring constantly. Pour 
over pie; spread to cover top of pie. Refrigerate 2 hours.
