This luscious dessert has a chocolate crumb crust and caramel-pecan filling crowned with melted chocolate. It's like a candy bar on a plate.


  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs (about 38 wafers)
  • 30 vanilla caramels
  • 1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping
  • 2 cups chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate pieces
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together chocolate wafer crumbs and melted butter. Press onto the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 10 minutes. Cool slightly on a wire rack.
  2. In a heavy medium saucepan, melt caramels in caramel ice cream topping over low heat, stirring often. Stir in the first 1/4 cup whipping cream. Remove from heat; stir in nuts. Spread over crust. Cool; cover and chill for 1 hour.
