Oatmeal Carmelitas Recipe ❣️

Carmelitas make an extraordinary, decadent layered bar for Valentines Day or any day. Carmelitas sandwich a sticky caramel, chocolate, and pecan filling between two layers of buttery, streusel-like shortbread studded with oats. We've made these more times than we can count and they are always a hit. Crowd pleasing, simple, never fail and addictive ❣️   

Ingredients

Crust

2 cups all purpose flour
cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups margarine or butter, softened 

Filling

(12.5-oz.) jar caramel ice cream topping
tablespoons all purpose
(6-oz.) pkg. (1 cup) semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans

 

Preparation

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 13x9-inch pan. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. In large bowl, combine all crust ingredients; mix at low speed until crumbly. Reserve half of crumb mixture (about 3 cups) for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture in bottom of greased pan. Bake at 350°F. for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in small bowl, combine caramel topping and 3 tablespoons flour; blend well.
  3. Remove partially baked crust from oven; sprinkle with chocolate chips and nuts. Drizzle evenly with caramel mixture; sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.
  4. Return to oven; bake an additional 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 hour or until completely cooled. Refrigerate 1 to 2 hours or until filling is set. Cut into bars.

Yields 36 servings.
