Want to make friends fast??  Serve these Caramelitas or give them as a gift and you’ll be everyone’s best friend!

Ooey-Gooey Caramel + Chocolate + Oatmeal = Simply Decadent!

These Caramelita Bars are amazing, but they are very rich so you can cut them in small servings.  The recipe makes an 8×8 pan which will be plenty unless you are feeding a crowd (simply double the recipe for a 13×9 pan).

Next time you need to take a dessert try these – you’ll be the talk of the party {In a good way of course}.



32 caramel squares, unwrapped
1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips


Combine caramel and cream in a small saucepan over low heat.  Stir until completely smooth; set aside.

In a mixing bowl, combine melted butter, brown sugar, flour, oats, and baking soda.  Press half of the oatmeal mixture into the bottom of an 8×8 pan sprayed lightly with cooking spray.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Remove pan from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the crust.    Pour caramel mixture over the chocolate chips.


Crumble remaining oatmeal mixture over caramel.  Return to oven and bake an additional 15-20 minutes, until the edges are lightly browned.  Remove from oven and cool completely before cutting.


Notes:  These take a while to cool down.  A short stint in the fridge will help if you are in a pinch for time, but don’t serve them cold; they should be served and stored at room temperature.

  1. Wow, these sound soo amazing. Caramel and chocolate, yummmm.

  2. Ooops! I left off one small but very important sentence. After you pour on the caramel you crumble the remaining oatmeal mix on top, then bake again. So sorry for those of you who follow by email. Hopefully, you’ll catch the correction! Thanks!! Kyra
