I baked Caramelitas for the Blogging Marathon Meet#75 when we were to make cookies. I had in mind these Oreos but since my kitchen was to get some makeover I had to shelve my elaborate plan. I needed some cookies that were simple and yummy.  Caramelitas with oats, nuts and chocolate not to mention caramel sauce or dulce de leche fit the bill to the T.

Caramelitas Bars

I like to think they are healthy enough to suit a person on diet.

These cookies are copied from  ‘Cookies Galore” by Jacqueline Bellefontaine that Pooja had gifted me.

These are the changes I made:

  • The original recipe calls for a 12*12 inch pan. Since I cannot dream of that big a pan to fit in my oven I went ahead and made the full batch of the oats mixture and used my 8-inch pan. The balance I used a 6 cup muffin pan to make for folks at home as they had not got a taste of the cookies just the smell.
  • Also, the unsalted butter and salt got replaced with my trusted Amul butter.


The unbeatable combination of chocolate and caramel makes these bars a firm favourite.
