I have a serious weakness for cookie bars. And when they have anything to do with chocolate or caramel, I’m especially in trouble. So you can imagine when I made carmelitas for the first time —a cookie bar with a melty chocolate-caramel filling—it was pretty tough for me not to eat the whole batch in one sitting. Good thing I had family and friends around to help me gobble them up (which didn’t take very long, trust me)!
Carmelitas usually are made with oatmeal cookie flavors, but this sugar cookie-based version is equally delicious. And not that I want to put you in the position of pitting your willpower against the pull of a delicious cookie bar, but if you, too, just can’t wait to make them, the recipe is a cinch to make. Just make sure to have friends and family nearby to help you enjoy them!
First, gather your ingredients. Betty Crocker® sugar cookie pouch mix makes this dessert even easier to throw together. All you need in addition is some butter, eggs, flour, caramel sauce, chocolate chips and chopped pecans.
