My roommate gave me this recipe, and I think they are my new favorite dessert. They were so easy to make, and they taste phenomenal.
These Carmelitas are gooey, yet stay together. They are a quick dessert for when you are in a pinch.
How to make Carmelitas:
In a small saucepan combine the caramel and the heavy whipping cream. Place it over low heat and stir until smooth and fully combined. Set smooth caramel aside.
In a separate bowl, combine butter (melted), brown sugar, flour, and oats.
Spray an 8×8 inch pan, and press half of the crust mixture into the bottom of the pan. Bake the crust at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
Once the crust is done cooking, sprinkle the chocolate chips over the hot crust. Spread the warm caramel over the chocolate chip layer.
Then, sprinkle the remaining crust dough over the caramel.
Bake in oven at 350, for 15 minutes.
Let cool, or place in fridge for 2-4 hours or until fully cooled.
Do I Have to Wait for them to Cool?
Although we would like to tell you otherwise, the answer is an unfortunate yes. They will taste good, but the molten chocolate and caramel may burn your mouth.
The other benefit of cooling the bars is that it gives them a chance to set a little bit. The caramel and chocolate won’t be quite so gooey and the bars will be able to hold their form better.
Can I double the Carmelitas?
Yes! And we recommend you do, especially if you plan on sharing it.
To double the recipe, simply double all ingredients and use a 9×13 pain instead of an 8×8. The cook time should be similar, but adjust a few minutes either way until golden brown.
