1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 (11 1/2-ounce) package (2 cups) milk chocolate chips
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans


Heat oven to 350°F.

Combine evaporated milk and caramels in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 6-8 minutes or until caramels are melted. Set aside.

Combine butter, sugar and brown sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add melted chocolate, eggs and vanilla. Continue beating, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Add flour; beat at low speed until just mixed. Stir in 1/2 cup chopped pecans.
