It's been a long week and I am soooo glad it's the weekend - finally! Brian's work schedule is crazy and I have had a lot to deal with by myself this week. It has drained me. I need one of those "mom time-outs"  that I've heard about!

We've got family in town this weekend for a birthday party, so I am looking forward to having some down time and fun! 

Speaking of fun, how fun are these Caramelitas?! Have mercy!! They've got a buttery oatmeal crust with yummy caramel and chocolate, sprinkled with nuts! I needed a little somethin' somethin' to brighten my spirits after this past week and these little treats hit the spot!

    1. I have never tried freezing them - they never last long enough! :) My guess is it would be ok! To freeze, cool bars completely, but do not cut into individual servings. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap, then wrap again with foil. Freeze up to 3 months. When ready to serve, thaw at room temperature before cutting into individual servings.

  16. You had me with the Caramelitas. Then you threw in Peanut Butter Fudge and Chocolate Pound Cake and, WOW, now I don't know which I want more!!!


I love reading your comments. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and respond. :)
