Introductions, Please…

18 Jan

Let me introduce you to my new friend, Carmelita.

I was introduced to Carmelita at this year’s; bring your neighbor some sinful Christmas treats swap. Let me tell you, Carmelita is a thing of beauty with her oatmeal, chocolate chips, caramel, pecans and gooey consistency.

One bite of these will make you will slap yo mama!

In case your mama needs a good slap or you feel like adopting a new addiction today, here’s the recipe.


1 c. flour
1 c. quick oats
3/4 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. butter, softened
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. nuts (opt.)
3/4 c. caramel ice cream topping & 3 tbsp. flour (mix)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake in approximately 8″x8″ pan. Combine first 6 ingredients to form crumb mixture. Press half mixture in the bottom of the pan. Reserve other half of mixture for top. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

After the mixture has baked 10 minutes, layer the chocolate chips, nuts and caramel with flour poured on top, in this order. Then crumble remaining flour mixture on top and bake 20 to 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Place in refrigerator to completely cool, before cutting. Store in air tight container in refrigerator for best results.
