Gooey Caramelitas! O M G…can we just say O M G?
I never realized how much I would like these, because to tell you the truth, I’ve never made them before, until this. How can this be?
(Probably because I always have my mouth buried in brownies, cookies or chocolate something or others.) 🙂
But thank you Pinterest. You never cease to amaze me in all the caramelitas I’ve seen over the last 2 years. I’ve sure done a lot of drooling…If you like to pin a lot of desserts or looking for recipes, check out my boards on Pinterest. I’m loaded! 🙂
One of the many pleasures of having a dessert blog is I get inspired by others baking and it makes me want to bake it too. Whatever I see…I want to make. Can you blame me?
Other gooey caramel desserts that have me drooling! Come drool with me! 🙂
I suggest, if you have never made these, give them a try. Heads up, they are very addictive, gooey with lots of caramel oozing in between oatmeal and chocolate fudge layers and a cookie crust.
Here’s the recipe!
- 32 caramel squares unwrapped
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup Marzetti's Old Fashioned Light Caramel Dip or any caramel dip will do. dip optional - for gooey-er
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter melted
- 3/4 cup brown sugar packed
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
- Spray an 8x8 pan with non-stick spray and set aside.
- Combine caramels and heavy cream in a small saucepan over low heat and stir until completely melted and smooth. If you opt for gooey-er - add 1/3 to 1/2 cup caramel sauce to the caramel mixture, stir in and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, combine melted butter, brown sugar, flour, oats, and baking soda.
- Place half of the oatmeal mixture into the bottom of the baking pan and pat down.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
- Remove pan from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over cookie crust.
- Pour caramel mixture over chocolate chips.
- Crumble remaining oatmeal mixture over caramel and return to oven and bake an additional 15-20 minutes, until the edges are lightly browned.
- Remove from oven and cool completely before cutting.
- Ooey Gooey Deliciousness!!
