Oatmeal Chocolate and Caramel Bars

by Laura

A little while ago, I had some packaged caramels that needed to be used for something. I mean I couldn’t let these caramels go to waste, right? Then remembered these tasty bars that incorporate oatmeal, chocolate and caramel. I also realized  I never shared the recipe with all of you! They are many times referred to as caramelitas but I am calling these oatmeal chocolate and caramel bars.

These only make a 11 x 7 inch pan, which is a good thing. It would be extremely dangerous to have much more on hand. I seriously could eat the whole pan of these on my own! These would be great to make with the kids as a summer activity. They are also a great item to take to a pot luck!
