I love the combination of chocolate fudge topped with toasted pecans, drizzled in smooth caramel and finished with a touch of sea salt.

Mini Salted Caramel Pecan Fudge Pies
makes 20 3-inch mini pies
Chocolate Filling:
3 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter, melted 
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup 100% cacao unsweetened cocoa
2 tablespoon light corn syrup
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 large eggs 
20 (3-inch) unbaked piecrust shells (you can find in freezer section of the grocery)
Toppings:
1 bag pecan halves
1 (13 oz.) bag melting caramels
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
sea salt for sprinkling

 

Preheat oven to 350°. To make chocolate filling, whisk together first 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Add eggs, stirring until well blended. Pour mixture into pie shells 3/4 the way full. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes. (Filling will be loose but will set as it cools.) Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.

Toast pecan halves on a cookie sheet in heated oven until just fragrant (approx. 5 minutes, do not allow to brown). Remove and allow to cool. Meanwhile, place caramels and cream in a saucepan over a medium heat. Stir consistently until caramel is completely melted. Remove from heat and pour into a measuring cup with a pour spout.

To assemble pies, arrange 5 pecan halves in a spiral design on top of each mini pie. Pour approx. 1 Tablespoon of warm caramel over each pie. While caramel is still warm, sprinkle each pie with a pinch of sea salt.
