I love oatmeal carmelitas. •2 cups all-purpose flour

•2 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats

•1 1/2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar

•1 teaspoon baking soda

•1/4 teaspoon salt

•1 cup butter, melted

•1 (12-oz.) package semisweet chocolate morsels

1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, toasted (optional)

1 (14-oz.) package caramels

1/3 cup half-and-half


1. Stir together first 5 ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add butter, stirring until mixture is crumbly. Reserve half of mixture (about 2 3/4 cups). Press remaining half of mixture into bottom of a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch pan. Sprinkle evenly with chocolate morsels, and, if desired, pecans.

2. Microwave caramels and half-and-half in a microwave-safe bowl at MEDIUM (50% power) 3 minutes. Stir and microwave at MEDIUM 1 to 3 more minutes or until mixture is smooth. Let stand 1 minute. Pour evenly over chocolate morsels. Sprinkle evenly with reserved crumb mixture.

3. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars.

I also have a few more recipes on my blog. Feel free to check them out! http://whatscookingintheburbs.blogspot.c...

I love the website www.food.com They have so many recipes on there and the reviews are super helpful and pretty accurate. Monster cookies are always a favorite with kids cause they have candy in them :) Just do a search online and the recipe will pop right up. I would suggest cutting the recipe in half though cause they make a ton!

Frosting: in a saucepan bring butter, coco powder and coca-cola to a boil. Stir in sugar and mix well. Spread over cake while cake and frosting still warm. Sprinkle nuts or choc chips on top. Serves 16

Even with the crazy amounts of sugar in this, I didn't find it overly sweet - good for potlucks as it makes alot!

My girls like to help me make cake balls. Very easy, find your fav cake mix and frosting. Bake the cake as instructed. Once the cake has baked and cooled crumble up into a bowl, then add about 1/2 to 3/4 frosting. Once everything is added, chill in the freezer till dough is stiff. Melt some chocolate (I have found almond bark works best but you can do whatever) Mold cake into balls (smaller than golf balls) then dip them into the chocolate and put them on wax paper to cool. Once they are all done you can decorate them any way w/ sprinkles or drizzle other chocolate on top.

Our family favorite is chocolate cake w/ strawberry or cherry frosting and dipped in chocolate and frozen. The cake never really freezes but the chocolate does and it tastes like a cherry cordial.

Have fun.
