8 tbsp butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups pecan halves
14 ounces unwrapped caramels
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
5 ounces milk chocolate chips
5 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375F. In a large bowl, cream together butter, sugar, brown sugar, and peanut butter. Beat in egg until well combined. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Pour into sugar mixture and beat until dough forms. Scoop out dough into a 15x10" baking pan and press it out to fill the pan. Scatter pecans evenly over dough. Bake for 10 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned around edges. Set on a wire rack. In a heavy small saucepan, add caramels and milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Drizzle caramel mixture over pecans. Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Let cool completely and cut into bars.
