I really enjoy cooking and trying new recipes. I want to be able to share some of these recipes with others since I enjoy when others share yummy recipes with me! It's also a great way to store them for my children to have when they grow up!

Ok, so I took a lot of pictures with this one, but I love how they turned out, but I loved the dessert even more. I've already made these twice, and they are a HUGE hit. The picture that I found of these on pinterest was originally what sold me in the first place.
They really are amazing!
They are extremely rich and gooey. I made them for 2 groups of friends and everyone rant and raved about them and asked "Is this on your blog???" So, here they are!
32 caramel squares, unwrapped
1/2 cup half and half (recipe called for heavy cream but they were out at the store)
3/4 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Combine caramel and half and half in a small saucepan on low or medium low heat. Stir until completely smooth. Set aside. In a separate bowl (I used a 4 cup pyrex glass measuring cup), combine butter, brown sugar, flour, rolled oats, and baking soda. Pat half of the mixture onto an 8x8 baking dish (I did spray mine, but I don't know if it was necessary). Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove pan from oven and evenly sprinkle chocolate chips over top. Evenly pour caramel over top of chocolate chips. Crumble remaining oatmeal mixture over caramel. Return to oven and continue baking 15-20 minutes, until the edges are lightly brown. Remove from oven and let cool completely before cutting. Store and serve at room temperature. This takes a long time to cool, so if you are able to, I made mine the night before and let sit out with a towel over top overnight. You can stick this in a fridge to cool faster, but don't serve it cold. I cut mine into 16 pieces.
