Yummy Yummy. . .
These Carmelitas are so good!
Crispy oatmeal cookie base with a layer of chocolate,
then a layer of gooey carmel topped with the cookie base.
You can make these even more sinful. . .
with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce to top it off.
My boys LOVED these, and my oldest son declared that we open up our own restaurant and serve this dessert.
I do agree, this dessert is Restaurant quality!


What you need:

-1 jar Mrs. Richardson's Caramel/Butterscotch topping
-12 oz package chocolate chips (a good brand like Guittards or Ghiradelli)
-2 cups flour
-2 cups oatmeal (I use the quick or Instant Oatmeal)
-1 1/2 Cups brown sugar
-1 tsp baking soda
-1/2 tsp salt
-1 1/2 Cup butter, melted

How to make:

1. Combine flour, oatmeal, melted butter, brown sugar, baking soda, salt in mixing bowl. Press 1/2 mixture into the bottom of a greased 9 by 13 pan. Bake for 17 minutes at 325 degrees.

2. Take out and layer chocolate chips and then the jar of caramel/butterscotch topping. Crumble the remaining crumbs over the topping and return to oven to bake for another 17 minutes.

3. Remove from oven and let sit for at least 5 hours before serving. If you put it in the fridge you won't need to let it sit as long (1 or 2 hours).

4. Cut into bars and serve.

Option for serving: put a scoop of Vanilla ice cream on top of one Carmelita and drizzle chocolate sauce on top.

Yum! Enjoy.
