Paleo Oatmeal Caramelitas

I'm lying, there is no oatmeal in these. Instead, there's almond pulsed in a food processor to the texture of oatmeal. And that nutty flavor just goes amazingly well with caramel. That's right I said caramel. A homemade decadent honey caramel. And chocolate with just a hint of salt. Oh my goodness. These things are to die for. I'm going to forbid myself from making them again, they are just too good to resist. Enjoy them, you've been warned of their addictive qualities.
