This recipe creates a sweet and gooey mixture called Caramelitas. It is quick and easy to make, and likely the kids could pull it together. It is made with caramels and chocolate chips held together with oats and a few other ingredients. You can be glad about the oats in this recipe. Oats have some important nutritional properties that come in particularly handy with the consumption of so much sugar, as in this recipe.
Oats are one of the best foods you could eat. They are loaded with vitamins and minerals, but almost more important, they contain a specific type of fiber, known as beta glucan. This fiber has been shown, repeatedly in clinical studies, to lower cholesterol, and help to prevent heart disease. Oats also contain anti-oxidants, which help to fight off free radicals that might destroy the LDL (good) cholesterol in your body. So oats serve multiple functions in supporting our good health. It is a great idea to include them in any dish that you can, and to get your family in the habit of eating oats often. They can be included in all kinds of ways, such as serving it for breakfast, as oatmeal, of course, but also sprinkling it over yogurt and even on ice cream. Oats have a nutty and buttery flavor that works with super sweet foods, and their nutritional benefits should not be overlooked. Thicken stews with ground oats, or add ground oats as part of any thing where you are using plain flour.
These sweet treats will probably serve up best chilled. They are easy to make and inexpensive. Little ones will want to help unwrap (and test taste) the caramels, and the cream, butter and brown sugar will come together for a really great taste. Enjoy them soon.
