Directions:
Preheat oven to 250 to 275 degrees. In saucepan, slowly melt chocolate chips, stirring often. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper and line up pretzels. Unwrap most of the caramels and cut in half. Place half pieces of caramel on each pretzel; place in oven for several minutes to make caramel soft. Remove from oven and place walnuts or pecan pieces on each candy. Pour melted chocolate over candies. Refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes to cool. A bag or more of Rolos can be used in place of the caramel & chocolate steps. Simply put one Rolo on each pretzel and place in oven for a few minutes; place pecan or walnuts on top.
