Carmalitas cooked on an ElectricKit Aga


225g whole rolled oats

250g plain flour

350g light soft brown sugar

1 tsp bicarb

50g unsalted butter melted

100g dark chocolate chips

150g 72% dark chocolate roughly chopped

100g pecans roughly chopped

1 x 397g tin Carnation Caramel


First, combine the oats, flour, sugar, bicarb and 1 tsp salt in a bowl

Following on, stir in the melted butter.

Spoon two thirds of the mixture into the tin and press down firmly.

Liberally scatter over the chocolate chips, dark chocolate pieces and the pecans.  Furthermore, drizzle 347g of the caramel over the mixture

Finally, sprinkle over the remaining oat mixture to cover.

Bake for 20–25 mins until golden. Place the cold plain shelf below the dish to prevent over cooking of the base of the dish.

Leave to cool completely in the tin (this takes ages because of the hot caramel!) before turning out and cutting up.  When your mixture is cold, turn out onto a board to cut into even squares.  This is quite a rich recipe, so some may like their squares to be small.  Or some may like their squares to be large!

You can drizzle with some more melted chocolate and the remaining caramel but I don’t think it needs it.
