Echolier Eats: Mrs. Marquez’s Oatmeal Carmelitas


Recipe from Mrs. Marquez’s Grandma Emily

“These can be made ahead and frozen for future use if desired. Fall is the perfect time to make these as caramel apple wraps are plentiful in the Fall. We like to make them as a special Fall and Christmas treat.” — Mrs. Marquez

Preheat oven to 350°


2 Cups flour

2 Cups oatmeal

1 ½ Cups brown sugar

1 tsp. Baking soda

½ tsp. Salt

1 ½ Cups butter, softened

1 package of caramel sheets for apples

12 ounce package of chocolate chips

1 cup of nuts


Mix the flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, baking soda, salt, and butter together. Press half of the crumb mixture into a 9 X 13 inch pan (rectangular cake pan).

Take the caramel sheets and lay them evenly on top of the base that is in the pan. Sprinkle the chocolate chips and nuts on top of the caramel layer.

Put on the other half of the crumb mixture, pat down, and bake for 30 minute at 350°.
