Carmelitas

Good morning!
I’m posting at My World Made By Hand and here is what I shared last month, enjoy!
This is one of my favorites, if not my favorite, go-to recipe.
It’s so easy and it’s so good I never have any leftovers.
My aunt gave it to me one year and I’m assuming she adapted the recipe from Nestle Tollhouse because I’ve seen a similar one by them.
Now I’ve adapted it for me and it’s heavenly.
You will need:
46 light carmels
4 T milk, light cream or evaporated milk {I’ve always used milk}
1 cup flour
1 cup quick oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup chocolate chips {Guittard are amazing, the bigger chocolate chip for me the better}
1/2 cup chopped pecans {I use about 1/4 cup Heath Toffee Bits}
Preheat your oven to 350.
Melt carmels with milk in microwave stirring every minute until melted. Set them aside.
Combine all dry ingredients except chocolate chips and pecans {toffee bits}. Stir in melted butter until mixed. Press half of crumbs into 7 x 11 pan.
Bake for 10 minutes.
**Here’s where I switch it up a bit. Since they have been such a crowd pleaser, I make a 9 x 13 and just add a touch more to every ingredient. I use about 3/4 crumbs for the bottom.**
Remove from oven, sprinkle chocolate chips & pecans or toffee bits. I like there to be a full layer of chocolate chips. I usually can barely see any crust, if that’s more than a cup, that’s ok.
Slowly pour caramel evenly over the top.
Chocolate, caramel, toffee…so yummy!
Sprinkle remaining crumbs on top and bake for 15-20 minutes longer.
Let it sit for a bit to cool down and then you won’t have chocolate and caramel drizzling everywhere.
Try to take a picture without anyone reaching for one…impossible. Thank you Little Miss L!
These are so easy to make and take to a party, football game, or around to neighbors.

Cut them small because they really will go fast!
