Ed's Caramelitas

I am still not positive who Ed is, but he is a genius. This is a sinful caramel bar. It has caramel, chocolate chips, and nuts sandwhiched between a oat butter cookie mixture. A must have recipe. No human can eat just one (well, maybe our Dad, definitely not me).

Ed's Caramelitas

32 Kraft caramels
10 T heavy cream
¾ c. brown sugar
¾ c. melted butter
1 c. flour
1 c. quick oats
1 t. baking soda
6 oz. chocolate chips
½ c. chopped nuts

1.Melt caramels in cream on double broiler. Set aside.
2. Mix melted butter, brown sugar, oats, flour and soda.
3. Divide mixture in half. Press ½ into well greased 8x11 pan.
4. Bake 10 minutes at 350°.
5. Remove and sprinkle chocolate chips right away, then nuts. Drizzle caramel mixture on top. Top with remaining crumb mixture.
6. Bake 15-20 min at 350°

Let these caramelitas set up for a while before cutting or they will be too gooey to cut into bars. Or you could just grab a fork and dig in….I won't tell anyone.
