Line a 8 inch square pan with plastic wrap, set aside. In a microwave safe bowl combine the caramels, 1 cup chocolate chips, and cream. Microwave on high 1 minute, then stir. Continue microwaving , stirring every 15 seconds until melted and smooth. Spread in the prepared pan and refrigerate until firm. Cut into 30 pieces and roll into 1 inch balls. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
