Foodporn Friday: Oatmeal caramelitas

How decadent are these? They’re called Oatmeal Caramelitas (or ‘Death by Sugar Overdose’, you choose)

LatteJunkie shared the link on Facebook and I knew I just had to try them. Its not easy to find the caramels I am used to here but I found a local equivalent and they worked perfectly! The only hard part is waiting 2 hours for them to set – they smell so good that its hard to keep your hands off them for long.

Here’s the recipe, I didn’t make any changes to it: Little Birdie Secret’s Oatmeal Caramelitas

If you make them you’re going to have quite a bit of left over evaporated milk. Here’s what I plan to do with mine…

Sweetcorn Souffle

2 tins creamed corn
2 teaspoons sugar
250ml evaporated milk/cream

3/4 cup mielie meal
2 eggs
2 teaspoons baking powder
salt & pepper

Mix together and put in shallow baking dish. Bake at 180 for an hour.
