Caramelitas

caramelitas

Caramelitas: it’s like chocolate caramel brownie meets oatmeal cookie. And let’s just say that there are sparks! Things go well . . . there’s a second date . . . and before you know it they are planning their wedding. They are a perfect match! The oatmeal layer contains butter and brown sugar which is unbeatable in and of itself. And then a layer of caramel and chocolate? Well, that is, just, perfection. I love these!!

 

32 Kraft caramels

½ c heavy cream

¾ cup butter, melted

¾ c brown sugar, packed

1 c flour

1 cup rolled oats

1 t baking soda

6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips

 

Unwrap caramels and place in saucepan with cream over low heat. Stir until melted and smooth. Set aside. Butter 8 x 8 pan*. Set aside. In separate bowl, stir together butter, brown sugar, flour, oats and baking soda. Spread half in bottom of pan. Bake at 350°F for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Sprinkle chocolate chips on crust. Pour caramel mixture over chocolate chips. Crumble remaining oatmeal mixture over caramel. Bake another 13-15 minutes or until edges are slightly golden. Cool completely. Store and serve at room temperature.

      Well, I guess if you don’t have any more of your incredible chocolate chip cookies on hand, then these’ll do. 😉 I’ve been salivating over those cookies, Jane. And hunting for huge chocolate discs. Found some! Need to make them asap!! I’d love to know what you think of the caramelitas. I honestly LOVE them!!

    I think “serve hot with vanilla ice cream” also sounds amazing. Carol, if I lived in your house, I’d weigh a whole heck of a lot. Oh, wait a second….

      Oh yum! Served with ice cream would take them to a whole ‘nother level, Jan. I like the way you think!! I better make another batch and try it. Right?? ‘Caus this batch is long gone!! And LOL!! You are so very funny. I enjoy you!!
