Another new idea from Kraft!


28 Kraft caramels
1 cup hot water
1 envelope gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup (1 6-ounce can) of evaporated milk, chilled until ice cold
1 cup chopped pecans
Baked 8-inch pastry shell


Place the caramels and hot water in the top of a double boiler. Heat, stirring frequently until the caramels are melted and the sauce is smooth. Soften the gelatin in the cold water and dissolve in the hot caramel sauce; add the salt and vanilla. Chill until slightly thickened.

Whip the chilled milk until fluffy. Fold in the caramel mixture and 1/2 cup of the chopped pecans. Pour this mixture into your favorite pastry shell that’s already been baked and sprinkle the top with the remaining chopped nuts. Chill until firm.
