DRESSED UP POTATO CHIPS

1 bag (13-oz) thick wavy potato chips
1 bag (14-oz) caramels, unwrapped
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 bag (12-oz) chocolate chips
2 tbsp butter-flavored shortening
1 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted

Line wire racks with parchment paper.  Spread the whole chips in a single layer on the prepared wire racks.

In a heavy saucepan over low heat, combine the caramels and cream, stirring constantly until smooth; remove from the heat.  Drizzle caramel mixture over the chips.

In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips with the shortening and microwave on high setting for 1 1/2-2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute.  Allow mixture to cool slightly; drizzle the chocolate mixture over the caramel drizzled chips; sprinkle with the pecans. 

Allow to cool until the chocolate and caramel are set before serving.


Yield: Approximately 9 dozen dressy chips.
