Good News Update: I have the most Uhh-mazing recipe for your Super Bowl weekend! I made them a couple of weeks ago and my husband and I ate the whole pan in 24 hours. We agreed to never make them again unless it was a special occasion. Lucky for us, the Super Bowl is almost here! Funny.. I don’t even watch football, I just enjoy a lot of really good food while everyone else does…so these brownies will be perfect! 🙂
But before I whip out the recipe, We all know that many of us wait in anticipation for the commercials that will air during the Super Bowl. Well, here’s a little tease…Watch the Heinz Super Bowl spot:

So…the rumor going around is Heinz = Happiness.
That’s quite the declaration we thought. And since we have an individual in our home who just happens to be an expert in “happiness,” we had her do a little detective-work:
All humor aside, we really took these pictures because of the “Show Us Your Heinz” promotion that is going on right now. We don’t usually enter sweepstakes due to the “your-chances-of-winning-are-next-to-nothing” aspect, but the grand prize on this one just happens to be my husband’s dream, so we entered (plus they have some instant-win prizes too). So take a picture with a bottle of Heinz and enter to win!
Now…here’s the recipe for the yummy Peanut Butter Carmelitas. You will NOT regret making these (at least, not if you are normal).
Chocolate-Peanut Butter Carmelitas
- 32 caramel squares, unwrapped
- 1/2 cup Half and Half (heavy cream also works)
- 3/4 cup softened butter
- 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup oats
- 1/3 cup peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Melt caramels with cream on low heat while you mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl or mixer (everything except for the chocolate chips). Once your mixture is crumbly, press half of it to the bottom of an 8×8 pan, and set the other half of the mixture aside.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes
Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips on top of the crust. Then drizzle the caramel on top of the chocolate.
Sprinkle the remaining crust mixture over the caramel and chocolate, and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes until very lightly browned. Cool before serving (I even like to refrigerate mine for 20 minutes or so).
Enjoy with a glass of milk, and try not to eat the whole pan.
P.S. Yours will look slightly less crumbly on top than mine (I was a dork and didn’t put all the butter in that the recipe called for)
