Oh my goodness. I was browsing through Pinterest the other night, like I always do. And my eyes came across a picture of Carmelitas. Since my husband is a caramel addict, I thought I would give the recipe a try. Course him asking me if I would make them with his beg face helped too. If you like Caramel and Chocolate... this is your treat. My husband said that this is now his favorite thing I have ever made. His previous favorite Chocolate Pots de Crème will now be in second. This recipe is gluten free and will drive any caramel and chocolate lover into complete bliss.
Gluten Free Carmelitas
adapted from LuLu the baker.
32 caramel squares, unwrapped
1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup rolled oats (I used Bob's Red Mill Certified GF)
1 teaspoon baking soda
6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
Note: I used Kraft wrapped caramels because they are gluten free.
Combine unwrapped caramels and cream in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until completely smooth; set aside.
Chocolate, Caramel, Ooey Gooey Yummy.
