I’m always looking for good party food! Simple things. Especially something I can prep the day before. I recently made these Antipasto Kebobs for a baby shower, and they were so pretty and easy to make! The kebobs were fairly quick to assemble; not a ton of prep time was needed, which is a must when you are trying to throw a party and have a ton to do.
I took everything out of the packaging and made an assembly line. Make sure to prepare the tortellini in advance and marinate in the balsamic dressing for at least an hour or even overnight. You can even dress with a little balsamic drizzle after plating! Your guests will love them. Enjoy!
- 32 caramel squares, unwrapped
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 3/4 cup butter, melted
- 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
- Combine the caramels and cream in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until completely smooth; set aside. In a separate bowl, combine melted butter, brown sugar, flour, oats, and baking soda. Pat half of the oatmeal mixture into the bottom of an 8x8" pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
- Remove pan from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over crust. Pour caramel mixture over chocolate chips. Crumble remaining oatmeal mixture over caramel. Return to oven and bake an additional 15-20 minutes, until the edges are lightly browned. Remove from oven and cool completely before cutting.
- Placing them in the fridge will help them cool off if you're in a pinch for time. They shouldn't be served cold, but all of that molten caramel takes a long time to cool down. They should be stored and served at room temperature.
- To make a 9x13" version, simply double the amounts.
- If you want to use homemade or store-bought caramel sauce in place of the caramel/cream mixture, use 1 1/4 cups of sauce.
