My roommate gave this recipe, and I think they are my new favorite dessert. They were so easy to make, and they taste phenomenal.  They are gooey, yet stay together. They are a quick dessert for when you are in a bunch, and if you love caramel and chocolate, you will fall in love with these Carmelitas.

  • 11 ounce bag of caramel bits (or you can use a bag of caramel squares)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup butter melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup flour
  • 12 ounces semi sweet chocolate chips (or milk chocolate)


  1. In a small saucepan combine the caramel and the heavy whipping cream.
  2. Place over low heat and stir until smooth and fully combined.
  3. Set smooth caramel aside.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine butter (melted), brown sugar, flour, and oats.
  5. Spray an 8x8 inch pan, and pat half of the crust mixture into the bottom of the pan ( I used my hands).
  6. Bake the crust at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
  7. Once the crust is done cooking, sprinkle the chocolate chips over the hot crust.
  8. Then spread the warm caramel over the chocolate chip layer.
  9. Then sprinkle the remaining crust dough over the caramel.
  10. Place back in the oven still heated at 350, and bake for 15 minutes.
  11. Let cool, or place in fridge for 2-4 hours or until fully cooled.
