Gluten Free Chocolate Caramel Layers

I saw THIS yummy looking treat and wanted to make them for the holidays. Since Paisley's very own Amanda is not able to intake gluten, I revised this so she could indulge in the yumminess. The revised version is printed below. If you are not worried about gluten, click on the link and follow the recipe from the Purcells.

1 1/2 cups gluten free oatmeal
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp cornstarch
1 stick butter, cut into pieces
1 Tbs ice water
1 egg yolk

14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
6 Tbs butter
2 Tbs corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. grease a 8 1/2-inch square metal baking pan. Blend oats in the food processor until powdery. Add brown sugar and cornstarch. Add butter and pulse until a coarse meal forms. Add ice water and egg yolk and blend just until moist clumps form. Press dough onto bottom of pan evenly. Bake 15 - 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely!

Whisk together condensed milk, brown sugar, butter, corn syrup and vanilla in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves, butter melts and mixture comes to a boil. Insert a candy thermometer and boil gently until caramel is thick and temperature reaches 225 degrees F. Whisk constantly to prevent from burning. Pour caramel evenly over cooled crust and let set 15 minutes. Melt chocolate in a double boiler, stirring occasionally. Spread melted chocolate evenly over caramel layer. Refrigerate until set, at least one hour. Can be made three days ahead if covered and refrigerated. Cut into bars and enjoy!
