Carmelita... oh yes please... Bars!

Now I have attended a few events this past week where I have made "Carmelita Bars". They were a huge hit! Now they aren't exactly "healthy" per say, but they do have oatmeal in them! Here are the ingredients and recipe. It's an easy put together dessert/treat/snack that is sure to win you some 'Brownie Points' with those who try them.

We are going to another event this Saturday... so those of you who will be there, you will be getting these Carmelita Bars so I don't have to eat them all (you know who you are)!


1 cup oatmeal
1 cup flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
32 caramels, unwrapped

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8"x 8" pan.
2. Combine caramels and heavy whipping cream in a sauce pan over low heat until melted, set aside.
3. Mix oatmeal, flour, baking soda, butter, brown sugar together.
4. Pat half of the oatmeal mix to the bottom of the greased pan. Bake for 10 min.
5. Once oatmeal mix comes out of the oven, sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly on top, pour the caramel mixture on top, and crumble the remaining oatmeal mixture on top of the melted caramel.
6. Bake for 20 min.

*Allow Carmelita Bars to cool completely (can be placed in the fridge to speed things up!) before cutting
