  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

    Place pecans, 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon in bowl; stir in 1/4 cup butter until well mixed. Press mixture firmly onto bottom and up sides of ungreased 10-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Bake 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely.

Slowly stir in melted chocolate with whisk until smooth. Pour into baked crust. Drizzle caramel mixture over chocolate filling. Slowly pull tip of knife through mixture to create marbled effect. Cover; refrigerate at least 2 hours.
