Spread over prepared crust. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

 

MICROWAVE caramel topping in medium, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 to 1 1/2

minutes or until heated through, stirring halfway through cooking time. Add remaining milk chocolate

morsels; stir until chocolate is melted.

 

SPRINKLE 2/3 cup nuts over chilled tart. Carefully drizzle milk chocolate caramel mixture over nuts.

Sprinkle with remaining nuts. Cover tart loosely. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight. Remove side of tart pan and place on serving platter.
