2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons butter
15 caramels, unwrapped
1 tablespoon milk
16 whole pecans
Line an 8 x 8 baking pan with parchment paper so it comes up the sides a bit.
In a large microwave-safe bowl, mix the chocolate chips, condensed milk, and butter. In a separate microwave-safe bowl, combine the caramels and milk. Set aside the bowl with the caramels.
Microwave the chocolate chip mixture at 50% power for 30 seconds. Stir, and continue to repeat until the ingredients are melted and combined. This should take about 3-5 minutes. Pour the chocolate mixture into the prepared pan and smooth it out using a spatula.
Microwave the caramel mixture at 50% power for 30 seconds. Stir, and continue to repeat. This should take about 1-2 minutes. Immediately pour the melted caramel over the fudge and swirl it around using a fork or knife.
Press the whole pecans into the fudge in rows of 4.
Let set in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Store the fudge in the refrigerator.
