My notebook is filled with recipe ideas. My mind never stops thinking about new irresistible desserts or how I can put a twist on old ones.

Sometimes I try a recipe and, even if I decide to blog about it, it may take me weeks until I get to share it with you. (remember theseblueberry pie cheesecake bars I made in may and shared the recipe in august). Some of the recipes, no matter how amazing they turn out, they keep getting pushedtowards the end of my list and I never get around to actually blog about them.

And there are some recipes that need to be shared right away! That’s the case of these caramel chocolate oatmeal bars (also known as carmelitas)! I could not wait to share them with you! If only you lived closer to actually come over for some tasting! Pure heaven!

This was the first time I made carmelitas. Actually it wasthe first time I had a carmelitas! But I’ve seen so many recipes for these amazing oatmeal bars filled with oozing caramel and melting chocolate I knew even if this is not the original recipe, they are bound to turn out amazing!

And they sure did! Soft, chewy and oh so gooey! Andsweet. And rich and dense! It’s best if you cut them in small bars. As much as I love sweets, two of these carmelitas are a little too much to eat in one sitting.

Well, ifyou think about it, only good things can come from melted butter, brown sugar, cream, caramel and chocolate! All my favorites in one gooey sticky bar!Carmelitas - caramel chocolate oatmeal bars recipe (3)
