Carmelitas

Yum Yum Yum is a good way to sum up this dessert. It takes a little time to prepare, but it is worth it! This dessert deserved to be double and that is exactly what I did – even at that, it will be gone too soon.

The ingredients are simple but the taste is gooey goodness!

The recipe below is ALREADY doubled. First you need to find a decent show, start a good convo or better yet, find a helper and unwrap caramels. I tried to find them unwrapped in bulk, but no luck. However,  my husband unwrap the goods while I got the other ingredients together. Preheat the oven to 350 then begin the baking.

In a pot, melt and stir together:

  • 70+ caramel squares
  • 1 cup heavy cream

While you’re working on that (melting takes a while), in a big bowl combine:

  • 1.5 c butter,softened (or melted if necessary)
  • 1.5 c brown sugar, packed
  • 2 c flour
  • 2.5 c rolled oats
  • 1.5 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • squirt of lemon juice (I tend to add this to everything)

Pack half this down in your baking pan 9×13 and bake for 10 mins. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips evenly.

  • 1 bag + chocolate chips

I like a lot of chocolate so I used an extra half a bag. I used a spatula to spread the melting chocolate . Pour the caramel sauce over the chocolate then crumble/plunk down the remaining oat mixture evenly over top.

Bake the entire thing for 15 minutes or until golden. Don’t get too eager for a taste test, the caramel takes a long time to cool – lesson learned! Store at room temperature so you get the gooey effect when its served. Cut into squares and enjoy…with ice cream =)
