How To Make Caramelitas
Caramelitas bars are layered dessert bars with an oatmeal shortbread crust that’s topped with gooey caramel and a crisp layer of pecans & chocolate chips.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and spray an 8×8-inch baking pan with baking spray.
To a food processor, add butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg, flour, baking powder and salt.
Pulse until coarse crumbs form then add in the rolled oats and stir.
Press half the filling into a baking pan gently and bake for 10 minutes.
While crust is baking add caramels and heavy cream to a bowl and microwave in 30-second increments until smooth.
Pour caramel over the crust once out of the oven then let cool for 20 minutes in the refrigerator.
Mix the rest of the topping with the walnuts and chocolate chips.
Add the crumble mixture over the cooled caramel.
Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown.
