    These look delicious! Silly question: By round milk chocolate covered chewy caramels, do you mean Rolos? I have some Kraft Caramels (Milk Maid, I think) that I'd like to use up. I'm wondering if I could cut those in half and use them and maybe toss in a chocolate chip or two. lol Either way, I'd like to make these. I'm a caramel lover, pecans are my favorite nut and who doesn't love chocolate? ;-)
