Carmelitas | Food

Carmelitas are pretty much the best thing you will ever put in your mouth!  I can have so much willpower on a diet but the second you put some of these in front of me I will eat the entire pan.

The best part is they are so easy to make and don’t require a ton of ingredients or steps….Hello lazy chefs!  😉


3/4 cup butter, melted

3/4 cup light brown sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup old fashioned oats

1 teaspoon baking soda

pinch salt

1 jar of carmel (I just grab the kind with the ice cream sundae toppings)

1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 Preheat oven to 350F.  Line a 8×8 inch pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.

2 In a microwave safe bowl add the butter and heat to melt.

3 Add the brown sugar and vanilla and whisk until smooth.

4 Add flour, oats, baking soda, and pinch of salt and stir until combined.  Mixture will be thick.

5 Add half the mixture to pan and smooth it out to create an even layer.

6 Bake for 10 minutes.

7 Microwave caramel until its easy to pour.

8 Sprinkle chocolate chips onto the baked layer and then drizzle generously with melted carmel.

9 Evenly crumble remaining oatmeal mixture onto the top.

10 Bake for 15-20 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and center is bubbling.

11 Allow bars to cool completely in the pan before slicing. I typically make these the day before to give them plenty of time to cool.

12 Enjoy!
