    Oh wow I first tried this at my sister-in laws house and it was fantstic so I had to make it myself. She gave me this site and I made it just as it says and it was awesome. I couldn't stop nibbling on it and the guys that work with my husband just thought it was great. I will never go with the ordinary pecan pie this is the pie I will use every year for the holidays!

    Every Thanksgiving I make a Chocolate -Pecan Pie. I made a few little changes to make this our favorite dessert now. I cut back the sugar to 1/2 cup and added about 3/4 cup of chocolate pieces. Fantastic!

    I made it once and it was delicious...loved its texture. I replaced the water by maple syrup, and cut the sugar down to 1/3 cup. Still very sweet, but that's what pecan pie is all about, isn't it :) Great for when you have people over. Definately to be eaten with a nice cup of coffee or milk...I also used my own pie dough, it was worth it! Will definately do it again.

    I made this for my husband's birthday in November. He loves pecan pie and I think this recipe is his favorite. Instead of using caramels, I bought Rolo candies and used the same amount in the recipe. 28 caramels = 28 Rolo's. This made the pie a chocolate caramel pecan pie and it is DELICIOUS.

    Amazing! I sometimes make this with a good quality, bitter chocolate to cut some of the sweetness. Either way, the pie is always a hit, and I have started making one of each as both are constantly requested.

    I made this last Thanksgiving for my family, and it was a huge hit! It taste like candy, it is very sweet, but not overwhelming. I followed the recipe exactly, except for one thing. I toasted whole pecans and lined the edges of the finished pie with them. This year I think I will dip the roasted pecans in chocolate. This is a great pie to pair with pumpkin because it has such a unique flavor. Yummy!

    I have just recently made this Caramel Pecan Pie recipe for my rather large family over Thanksgiving, and it was so yummy that there wasn't a SINGLE piece of pie left to enjoy later!! It was so simple to make, yet it tastes like it should be sold at a high end restaurant! I didn't change a single thing about it. Simply delicious! I will be making this Pecan Pie recipe for Thanksgiving from now on!

    I made this delicious pie for Thanksgiving and my family raved about it. Even one of my daughters that doesn't like pecan pie wants me to make more for Christmas!!

    This was good but 28 Kraft caramels only filled the 9-inch crust about halfway. Had to scramble to unwrap and melt the rest of the caramels in the bag in order to get enough filling, and the result might have been affected by the fact that the first part of the filling sat in the crust without being baked for a few extra minutes. Anyway turned out a bit grainy. Recipe should give you the total weight of caramels to use, rather than the number of pieces

    This pie was a huge hit and I was specifically asked to make it again for a work Thanksgiving party. One simple change I made was to use an 11 oz package of Kraft caramel bits. This eliminated having to unwrap the candy and it was enough to fill the pie, a problem noted by others. I am sure it ups the calorie count, but who thinks pecans pie is healthy in the first place? :-)
