baking tuesday – carmelitas – townie


like bumpkin i saw this recipe on pinterest and it was right up our alley!  chocolate and caramel YUM!

i doubled the original recipe and used tj’s fleur de sel caramel – i don’t think i used enough caramel though..  they turned out a bit dry and the crumb topping was really crumby and dry.    might try these again — might not — looks like bumpkin had better luck with these!
