Recipe Review: Cupcake Diaries Carmelitas

I have decided that there are so many delicious recipes on so many great recipe blogs that I am going to start doing recipe reviews. It will be a fun way to introduce new recipes and get to know other recipe bloggers better. So for my first ever recipe review, I have chosen Cupcake Diaries carmelitas. These yummy bars are so good, they are dangerous. They were really easy to make and the only thing ingredient that I had to get that isn't normally in my pantry was the Mrs. Richardsons butterscotch carmel ice cream topping that I found at Winco. The recipe suggested that this was the best kind to use for these bars, and it turned out great! 


So without further ado, here is our first Recipe Review!

Carmelitas

What you need:
2 C flour
2 C oats
1 1/2 C brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 salt
2 1/2 sticks butter
1 (12 oz) bag milk chocolate chips
1 jar Mrs. Richardsons butterscotch carmel ice cream topping

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix together flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. Melt butter and pour in mixture. Mix to incorporate all the dry ingredients with the butter. Press half of  your mixture in to a 9x13 pan. Bake for 17 minutes. 
Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the first layer. Then heat carmel in microwave for 2- 30 second increments. (60 seconds all together) Pour warm carmel over chocolate. Sprinkle the second half of oats mixture over the top of the carmel. Bake for 17 more minutes. 
Remove from oven and let the bars cool completely. You may need to put them in the refrigerator to speed up the cool down, because you will be dying to try them by now! 
When the pan is completely cooled, cut into bars and serve. Enjoy!!
