oatmeal caramelitas

oatmeal caramelitas

It's Wednesday (aka hump day). Anyone need a little pick-me-up to get them through the week? Take a look at these goodies.

They have caramel. They have chocolate. They have oatmeal (see I did throw in a tiny bit of healthiness), and they are gooey. Go make some. Treat yourself. These will definitely make you feel like you can make it through to the weekend.

Oatmeal Caramelitas
35 caramels
5 T. evaporated milk
--melt in a saucepan over low heat stirring often until melted and combined.

While melting caramel, mix together:
1 cup quick cook oats
1 cup flour
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup melted butter
--Press half of the mixture into a greased 11 x 7 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with 1 cup chocolate chips. Pour caramel mixture over chips. Crumble remaining oatmeal mixture on top. Bake for 15 minutes more. Refrigerate immediately for at least 2 hours. Cut and eat!
