Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bites

So delicious, my friends daughter tried to hide them so no one else could have one!  These were simple and tasty, what more can you ask for?

4 cups pretzel (sticks work best)                            
2 cups pecan halves      
1 package caramels                                                 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract                            
1 package (11-1/2 ounces) semi sweet chocolate chips
Whipping cream (you might need this when melting the caramel and chocolate)
Line a 13x9-in. pan with parchment paper.
Spread pretzels and pecans in the bottom of the pan.                                
In a large heavy saucepan melt caramels (keep the cream handy in case your caramels start to seize up). 
Stir in vanilla.
Pour over pretzels and pecans. 
Wait about ten minutes so that the caramel has a little time to firm up.                                                            
In a double boiler, melt chocolate chips.
Stir until smooth and glossy.
Spread over caramel layer.
Let stand until firm, if you are in a hurry pop in the fridge.                            
Slice candy into bite size pieces and enjoy!
