Here is the truth on these Carmelitas: these are one of my favorite bar recipes ever. There is something about these flavors that just make me so happy. SO happy! It’s melted goodness over a sweet brown sugary buttery oat crust and I basically want to eat them everyday. And pretty much have for the last week. #noshame

Bonus- super easy. You can make the crust by hand without a mixer. Use pre made little caramels to melt and then chocolate chips. EASY! These will go fast so set some aside for yourself before everyone gets a taste at how good these are.
