Oatmeal Date Squares

Chocolate Carmelitas

Have any of you ever had a carmelita? Well, I had one recently, and not to be dramatic, but my life changed. Besides having a name that’s really fun to say, carmelitas are quadruple-layered bars of a buttery oat mixture, rich semi-sweet chocolate, chewy, gooey caramel, and more buttery oats. Yeah. They have all of that…… Continue reading Chocolate Carmelitas
