Cut each loaf into 3/4-inch slices. Place slices cut-side down and 1 inch apart on same baking sheet. Bake an additional 18 to 20 minutes, turning once, until golden brown. Cool 10 minutes.
  • MELT caramels and cream over medium-high heat in small saucepan. Cook, stirring constantly, until smooth. Remove from heat. Drizzle immediately over biscotti. Place chocolate chips in 1-quart heavy duty resealable plastic bag. Microwave on HIGH 45 to 60 seconds or until melted and smooth when kneaded. Cut small corner off bag. Drizzle lightly over biscotti. Sprinkle with pecans. Let stand 15 minutes or until chocolate is set.
