Carmelitas

Caramel belongs to fall.  I visit it a lot throughout the year, but....when it's fall, it's a mandatory part of my home.  I made these last year for a meeting and they were de-li-cious...as they should be....caramel and chocolate?  As if there was any question....so, if you need a little goodness in your life.
Carmelita
Ingredients:  32 caramel squares (unwrapped), 1/2 c. heavy cream, 3.4 c. butter (melted), 3/4 c. brown sugar, 1 c. flour, 1 c. rolled oats, 1 t baking soda, 6 oz semisweet chips
Instructions:  Combine caramels and cream in a small pan over low heat.  Stir until it is completely smooth and then set aside.  In a separate bowl, combine the melted butter, brown sugar, flour, oats, and soda.  Pat half of the oatmeal mix into the bottom of an 8x8 greased pan.  Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.  Remove and sprinkle chocolate chips over crust.  Pour caramel mix over chocolate chips.  Crumble the rest of the oatmeal mix over the caramel mix.  Return to the oven and bake for 18 minute (until the edges are lightly browned).  Remove and cool before cutting.
*You can use caramel sauce instead of the Carmel and cream mix-use 1 1/4 c of sauce.

Love, love, love these. I eat the entire pan if I'm not paying attention.
