Carmelitos Bars

I made two batches of these last week, and me thinking they were the best.things.ever i took them around to a few friends. But now I am a little confused, maybe they are not that good because not one of them said that they liked them... they didn't say anything, so maybe they were just being nice? So... if you are asking me I am giving them a two thumbs up!

1 cup flour
1 cup quick oats (sometimes I use regular)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup chocolate chips (I like milk for this)
3/4 cup caramel topping
1/2 tsp soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup pecans, chopped (I never add these but good)
3 Tablespoons flour

(for mine, I 1 1/2 the cookie part of the recipe so they had a thicker bottom and more crumb topping for the top!)

Mix flour, oats, sugar, soda, salt and butter. Press half of the mixture into a 11x7 pan and set the other half aside. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and chopped pecans (if using). Blend 3/4 cup caramel with 3 T. flour. Pour (drizzle) over chocolate chips. Sprinkle the balance of the flour oat mixture over the dessert. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until light brown. Allow to cool and set before slicing.

Recipe from Sisters Cafe.


  1. They look and sound delicious. Now I want to make them. I'll have to make them for the kids lunch time treat soon. I'll give you a thumbs up too. :)

  2. I thought they were wonderful. I really loved the caramel in it. I think my husband and I ate the plate in record time. Thanks!

  3. So I'm just randomly blog staulking tonight and saw your food blog and saw this post....I'm pretty sure you took some of these to the Christensen's because I'm pretty sure I snuck some into my mouth while babysitting for them (haha really we are allowed). I was trying to not eat sweets but just wanted a bite and oh my good!! Needless to say I had more than one bite, way worth it though! Just thought I would randomly share :)
