Carmelita Recipe Ingredients:

- Brown Sugar
- Milk Chocolate Chips
Items needed to prepare Carmelitas:
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 melted butter, brown sugar, flour, and oats.
Spray an 8 x 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?
You will want them to cool slightly because the hot chocolate and caramel may burn your mouth. But these are amazing when warm.
A 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 them.
To double the recipe, simply double all ingredients and use a 9 x 13 pan instead of an 8 x 8. The cook time should be similar, but adjust a few minutes either way until golden brown.
We know you’ll love these Carmelitas. Consider some of these tasty tips to make them top notch.
- These silicone spatulas are awesome for this step
- Add chopped nuts – we like pecans.
- Serve with a glass of milk.
- Quick oats or regular oats – they both work great.
