What do you think of #7?

So far, one of the things I've learned during this Top 10 list is that you guys think Pecan Balls aka Mexican Wedding Cookies should be #1 or in the top 5. But, once you see the top 5 - I know you guys will quickly chang your minds (I think). I 've also learned that I enjoy keeping you in suspense. Until #6, enjoy Butter Pecan is as good as it sounds!
"Butter Pecan Fudge"
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup pecan halves, toasted and coarsely chopped
In a large heavy saucepan, combine the butter, sugars, cream and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Boil for 6 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Stir in confectioners' sugar until smooth. Fold in pecans. Spread into a buttered 8-in. square dish. Cool to room temperature. Cut into 1-in. squares. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Yield: 1-1/4 pounds.

This dip is so easy and if you love Mexican food, this is for you. It is yummy and the layers are so pretty.
"7 Layer Dip"
1 16 oz. can refried beans
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 cup each sour cream, guacamole, salsa, lettuce, cheddar chese
4 oz. black olives, sliced
1 cup tomatoes
Layer in this order:
Sour cream mixed w/taco seasoning
