What would make this even more over the top?
Adding some chopped nuts and maybe a drizzle of chocolate too.
Note: The caramel will melt into the oatmeal quickly when hot, so I'd drizzle it on at the table with the kids there. Full disclosure: The above shot was taken after the oatmeal cooled, simply for the sake of trying to get a better picture... What can I say, it's oatmeal folks, not exactly Super Model material...
Here's my first pic.
1 large apple, peeled and chopped
2 C water
1 C Old Fashioned Oats
About 4 square Kraft Caramels per bowl, unwrapped-maybe an extra 1-2, they stick to the cup
- Add apple and water to 2 quart pot with lid, bring to a boil.
- Add the oatmeal, bring to boil, reduce to simmer and cook for approximately 5-8 minutes or until desired consistency.
- Place caramels in a microwave safe cup, add a couple drops of water, microwave for a few seconds, stop and stir, repeat until melted.
- Drizzle caramel over oatmeal, serve with milk or cream.
Eat well and have a happy day:@)
