How do I store my Carmelitas Dessert?

Put the Carmelitas in an airtight container. Keep them at room temperature for up to a week.

If the carmelitas are not going to be finished within a week, place them in the freezer and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw on the counter overnight before serving.

Can I make substitutions?

Substitutions are great but sometimes you aren’t sure if they will work. Some of the most popular substitutions are listed below so that you can make these Carmelitas with the same great taste and texture.

Caramel bits

You can use caramel squares. You can also use a premade caramel sauce as long as it is a thick and creamy sauce. A runny caramel sauce would not be the best for this delicious dessert.

Oats

Rolled oats were used in this recipe. This type of oats adds a wonderful texture to the crust and adds heartiness to the crust. If you use quick or instant oats you may find a different texture with your dough.

Chocolate chips

Chocolate chunks would be fun! Chop them and sprinkle them instead of chips. Substituting dark chocolate will bring a nice balance to the sweetness of this recipe.

Next, drizzle the melted caramel mixture evenly over the chocolate chips. Leave a little caramel sauce to use for drizzle at the end!

Finally, crumble the last half of the dough over the chocolate and caramel. Then place the carmelitas into the oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove from the oven and drizzle the remaining caramel evenly over the pan. Allow the carmelitas to cool. Once cooled for about 30 minutes you can put the pan in the refrigerator to accelerate the cooling process. Make sure the carmelitas are completely cool before cutting into portions!
