I like to bring these rich goodies to parties or my husband's workplace," says Julie Tambrini of Lansing, Illinois. "The combination of gooey chocolate caramel and a crumbly topping makes them irresistible."

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter
  • 16 caramels
  • 1 tablespoon 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup flour, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve 1/2 cup for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture into an 8x4-in. loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 10-14 minutes or until set.
  2. In a saucepan or microwave-safe bowl, melt caramels with the milk. Stir in the remaining flour until smooth. Pour over crust. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture and chocolate chips. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until topping is golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
