Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place 2 cups of the pecan pieces in food processor or blender. Cover. Process until finely ground, using pulsing action. Mix nuts with granulated sugar and butter. Press mixture firmly onto bottom and up side of 9 inch pie plate. Bake 12 -15 minutes 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 of the whipping cream in microwaveable bowl on high for 2-1/2 to 3 minutes, or until caramels are completely melted. Stir after each minute. Pour into crust. Chop remaining cup of pecans. Sprinkle over pie.
Place chocolate, remaining 1/3 cup whipping cream, vanilla, and powdered sugar in a saucepan. Cook on low heat just until chocolate is completely melted, stirring constantly. Pour over pie, gently spreading to evenly cover top of pie.
Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Store leftover pie in refrigerator.
