This Quick and Easy Carmelitas recipe is surprisingly easy to make using just four decadent ingredients. This dessert recipe is a cross between a brownie and a blondie because it has the goodness of both the desserts combined into one. Easy dessert recipes that are delicious are usually always a hit among family members. The luscious flavor of chocolate cookie dough along with the creaminess of caramel sauce together makes it one of the best dessert recipes ever. Serve these beauties along with a scoop of vanilla or chocolate ice cream and it will make your guests drool. When it comes to desserts, perhaps there is nothing better than a mouthful of chewy Caramelitas. This recipe is pretty basic yet a delicious dessert to serve anytime you has parties or have guests over.

In this recipe, make sure to spread all the layers evenly so that the taste of every layer gets equally distributed in your mouth with every bite. Try not to over bake these delicious beauties because there is a tendency they could dry out easily as a result of overheating. It's important to retain the chewy texture while still baking the cookie dough just until done. Always make sure to adjust the oven temperature according to your oven type. Some ovens have a temperature difference, for instance, they tend to bake about 10 to 15 degrees hotter. In this recipe, you could also make your caramel sauce using sugar, butter, and heavy cream. Some tips to keep in mind if you plan to make homemade caramel for this recipe are, both the butter and heavy cream should be at room temperature or warmer. Do not add too much or too little cream for the caramel to firm up well. When you’re cooking the caramel, you want to look for amber color. Don’t let it sit on the stove for too long as it might get too dark or it could burn.

In this recipe, you can use a combination of semi-sweet and unsweetened chocolate chips. You can also use a layer of peanut butter and marshmallow fluff and sprinkle with coconut flakes. Since this easy and delicious dessert uses only four ingredients, it is essential to use quality ingredients to get that luscious depth of flavor. If you’re on a budget, then prioritize your list of recipe ingredients based on the essential baking supplies to the least important ones and purchase the ingredients for this recipe accordingly. A good dairy-free option for vegans is Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips. If you wish to add nuts like pecans or walnuts on top for that crunchy twist, go ahead by all means.
