Chocolate Caramel Delights


Yummy!  I don't know what else to say about these.  I don't make them very often because they are so rich, and it takes a little bit of time to melt the caramels and put it all together, but they are so worth it!  The recipe came from one of my first cookbooks (and still one of my favorites) called A Pinch of Salt Lake.  I think a better name for these would simply be Chocolate Caramel Bars, but oh well.  They are delightful!

Chocolate Caramel Delights
print this recipe

1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/8 cups melted butter
14-oz. bag caramels (48)
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 12-oz. pkg. milk chocolate chips

In a large bowl combine first 6 ingredients to make mix.  Melt caramels and whipping cream in a saucepan over low heat. Press 1/2 of mix into 9x13 ungreased pan (it will be a very thin layer).  Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes.  Sprinkle chocolate chips over baked mixture and top with melted caramel mixture; sprinkle remaining mix on top (the caramel/chocolate layer will not be completely covered).  Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
