Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. Spray bottoms, sides and tops of 12 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray.
  • 2 In 1 1/2-quart heavy saucepan, melt chocolate chips and butter over low heat, stirring frequently; cool slightly. Stir in buttermilk, brown sugar, vanilla and egg.
  • 3 In large bowl, mix flour, baking soda, salt and chopped pecans. Stir in chocolate mixture just until combined. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Push 1 caramel into center of batter in each muffin cup.
  • 4 Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until toothpick inserted 1/2 inch from edge of muffin comes out clean. Cool 1 minute. Turn muffin pan upside down onto cookie sheet to remove muffins. Immediately place another caramel on bottom of each muffin. Leaving muffins upside down on cookie sheet, return to oven about 1 minute or until caramel is soft enough to add pecan halves.
  • 5 Place 3 pecan halves on caramel on each muffin. Cool until caramel is slightly firm before serving, about 10 minutes. Serve warm if desired.
