Carmelitas

Last week was National Screen Free Week.  I’ve never participated before, but this year I decided to give it a try.  I didn’t get on the internet other than for work or to research something and I didn’t watch any TV.  I thought I would be miserable, but the week actually was quite nice.  I haven’t even reactivated my facebook account yet.  I’m pretty sure I will do that this evening though. One of the things I said I would do with my free time was to cook something new. I decided I would make carmelitas and bring them to the office for everyone to try!  I really liked them, but they are REALLY sweet!  I got the recipe from Lulu the Baker  Her picture of the carmelita is so much better than the one I took.

32 caramel squares, unwrapped…I used a bag of caramel morsels
1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

Mix the caramels and cream in a saucepan over a low heat.

You will know the caramel is ready once you see it get really creamy. Once it’s done, put it to the side until the cookie part is ready. Mix the rest of the ingredients (minus the chocolate morsels) in a bowl and then put half of the mixture in the bottom of the 8×8 pan. Put it in the oven at 350 for 10 minutes.

Top the mixture with the semi sweet chocolate morsels.

Cover the chocolate with the caramel.

Put a layer of the left over cookie recipe over the caramel and put it in the oven and bake on 350 for 15 to 20 minutes or until the edges are brown.

Let it sit out until it cools.  You can refrigerate it if you want it faster, but they should be stored at room temperature.  My husband said he wishes he had some ice cream to top it.  I think it would be too sweet.
