Caramel:

In a medium-sized heavy bottom sauce pan on l to low heat place the remaining 1/2 cup butter, the brown sugar, sweetened condensed milk and syrup.  Stirring constantly for 25 to 30 minutes until thickened and caramel colored.  Pour over baked shortbread dough spread all the cookie gets covered.  Chill for 30 minutes or until caramel has set.

In a microwave safe glass bowl heat chocolate morsels for 1 minute on high.  Stir chocolate until fully melted and spread over caramel sprinkle with pecans.  Chill for 30 minutes until chocolate set then slice into 2 inch squares or slice squares in half to make triangles.  Makes about 6 dozen squares or 12 dozen triangles.
