Ok true story. I went through a phase when I was making carmelitas on repeat. New baby? Let me bake you some carmelitas. New house? Carmelitas. Family brunch for any and no reason whatsoever? Carmelitas baby!
Holy smokes this caramel changed muh lifeee. Here’s my deal. I really like caramel. When I was young, one of my favorite after school snacks was cut up apples and those little single serve caramel.
I remember the first time I had a “turtle.” I remember being a hardcore candy bar fan and being taken aback by the unexpected deliciousness of these unknown little mounds of tasty. Chocolate outer with gooey caramel center? Extra bonus points for that nutty crunch? Why did nobody tell me?!
