Caramelitas

IMG_2785-0

Finally! A pinterest recipe that isn’t a terrible disappointment.

Ingredients:

  • 1 small bag of caramels (~15)
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 3 – 6 oz semisweet chocolate chips 

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease an 8×8 pan, or line with foil/parchment.
  2. Mix melted butter and sugar.  Add flour, oats, baking soda and mix well.
  3. Press half of the mix into the pan to form an even bottom layer.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes.
  5. Over med-low heat, combine heavy cream and caramels (unwrapped).  Stir until uniformly melted and smooth.
  6. Remove bottom crust from oven and let cool slightly.  Top with pecans and chocolate chips, pour the caramel sauce over it all.
  7. Crumble the second half of the cookie dough on top.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until edges are slightly browned.
  9. Cool completely before cutting.

Recipe adapted from: Made from Pinterest

I used foil for this batch. I also added the pecans to the cookie dough, which I won’t do again because it causes the cookie dough to crack and it’s more difficult to keep in bar form.
