    Very good ideas from everybody else to add extra caramel, and roll the dough in the pecans before dipping in chocolate. Made them for Christmas parties and people ask me to make them all the time. Definitely needs the extra caramel, though!

    I was really excited to make these, but when I finally did i was disappointed. They were really easy to make, but even after adding extra caramel and cream cheese the flavor was not what i thought it would be. They tasted okay nothing special.

    very easy to make, my five year old helped. I took the advice of using more caramel and put the pecans on the inside and outside. The good news for portion control...I could only eat one because they were very rich!
