Carmelitas

Yield: 20-24 bars

Ingredients

  • 2 c. oats
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 c. butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1 jar Mrs. Richardsons butterscotch caramel sauce (Try to get this exact kind! It makes a huge difference in texture and flavor.)
  • 1 bag milk chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Combine oats, flour, baking soda, melted butter, and brown sugar.
  2. Press half the mixture in the bottom of a greased 9x13 pan. Bake 15-17 minutes at 325°.
  3. Sprinkle baked cookie layer with entire bag of chocolate chips; pour butterscotch caramel sauce over the chocolate chips.
  4. Sprinkle remaining oats mixture over the top of the sauce and chocolate chips to cover. Bake 15-17 more minutes.
  5. Cool completely before cutting. I like to make them the night before so they have plenty of time to cool and set up.

    I have these in the oven right now, but I am wondering about the butter. One and a half cups seems like a lot. Did you you mean one and a half sticks? Just wondering! I will see how they turn out. Can’t wait, they are one of my favorite cookies!
