Millionaires...If you can't be one, EAT one!-Perfect For Valentine's Day

With Valentine's Day right around the corner, nothing says love better than chocolate, and nothing says it better than a HOMEMADE chocolate treat!  These "Millionaires"  (A.K.A. turtles) are super easy to make.  Only 4 ingredients to chocolate-caramel candy goodness!
Only 4 ingredients away from Millionaires! 
NOTE:  On my second batch, I was able
to find unwrapped caramels and
unwrapped kisses on the baking aisle. 
Time Saver!
Add milk to caramels.
Melt caramels and milk until smooth.

Stir pecan halves into melted caramel mixture.

Drop caramel-pecan mixture by
teaspoonfuls onto a buttered baking sheet.
Melt chocolate in microwave until smooth.

Yum!  Millionaire Love...
If you can't be one, EAT one!
