Chocolate caramel pie -- I mean, what else do I need to say? It's like a Snickers bar, only with pecans (you can leave those out if you want). It's chocolaty and gooey. And it's EZ. Don't you love no-bake pies in the summer? Basically you're just melting some caramel squares, then melting some chocolate chips with cream, and then letting the whole thing set in the refrigerator. Oh Friday, you are going to be so delicious!
