Really Decadent Fudgy Caramel Wedges

Last night while in an Albertson's store I had an uncontrollable chocolate urge, so I wandered over to the bakery. There I saw something called: Chocolate Pecan Triangles

Not being able to resist, I ate one (the whole thing) and it only cost $1. Of course there were no calories!

Then, today, while at a garage sale I found a cookbook named Chocolate Lovers III Cookbook and there right before my eyes was a picture of "Fudge Caramel Wedges" that looked exactly like what I had eaten the night before. When looking closely at the recipe, I knew I had hit pay dirt!

  • 1 ounce (1 square) unsweetened chocolate, chopped
