Caramelitas

I love all things caramel and chocolate!  These little bars are seriously a bite of heaven!  I had to practice self-control to not devour the whole pan myself :)  As you can tell, mine are a little gooey in the picture because I could hardly wait to cut into them!

CARAMELITAS

32 caramel squares, unwrapped
1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

Combine caramels and cream in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until completely smooth; set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine melted butter, brown sugar, flour, oats, and baking soda.
Pat half of the oatmeal mixture into the bottom of an 8×8″ pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
Remove pan from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over crust.
Pour caramel mixture over chocolate chips.
Crumble remaining oatmeal mixture over caramel.
Return to oven and bake an additional 15-20 minutes, until the edges are lightly browned.
Remove from oven and cool completely before cutting.

To make a 9×13″ version, simply double the amounts.

Enjoy!

    Would love to see this recipe include an option for making the caramel, rather than buying and unwrapping the gross little cubes.
