Caramel Pecan Candy

Caramel Pecan Candy

1/3 cup plus 1/2 cup butter, divided
20 Oreo cookies crushed
1 pkg caramels (14 oz.)
3 cups chopped pecans

3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3 TBS butter
3 TBS heavy whipping cream
3 TBS light corn syrup
3/4 tsp vanilla

Melt 1/3 cup butter; stir in cookie crumbs. Press into an ungreased 9in. square baking dish. Bake at 325 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. In a saucepan over low heat, melt caramels and remaining butter. Stir in pecans. Pour over crust. Cool.

For topping, in a saucepan, combine the chocolate chips, butter, cream and corn syrup. Cook and stir over low heat until smooth. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Pour over caramel layer. Cool on wire rack. Refrigerate until chocolate hardens. Let candy stand at room temperature for 5-10 min. then cut into squares about 1 in.
