Helllllo snickerdoodle caramelitas!
OH yes we are making these babes a THING.
Look at those layers. Crumbly oats. Chewiness. White chocolate chunks. Caramel drizzle.
I can’t even stand it! Snickerdoodle caramelitas are the way to my snickerdoodle loving heart.
I’m partnering with McCormick today to bring you another recipe that is twice as nice! We have two holiday treats – one here and one on instagram. I’m HERE FOR YOU if you are looking for fabulous holiday flavors. If cinnamon and cinnamon sugar are some of your favorite holiday spices? I’ve got you.
You can head over to Instagram today to see another way I use this McCormick Cinnamon Sugar (spoiler alert: holiday breakfast!) – it’s dreamy! A double whammy of deliciousness. You HAVE to make Cinnamon Sugar Brulee French Toast that I’m sharing over on insta for your loved ones this Christmas morning and serve these bars for dessert later in the day.
SO let’s talk caramelitas. Traditional caramelitas are made with oats, caramel sauce, and chocolate chips. They are DELISH. I’ve been dying to make an updated version, and these are just too good. I mean, who can resist snickerdoodle anything?
McCormick Cinnamon Sugar has been a staple since I was a kid. Buttered toast with cinnamon sugar was a treat that we’d get every once in a while, and I even put a coconut oil version in The Pretty Dish. It’s nostalgic comfort food to me. Cinnamon sugar was sprinkled on oatmeal, on apples, on applesauce at dinner – so many different things. It practically played a part weekly!
While it ends up being a huge player in my holiday pantry, it’s something we tend to grab year-round, too.
These babes are chewy, a bit crunchy and full of so much cinnamon sugar flavor. I can’t get enough!

Snickerdoodle Caramelita Bars
These snickerdoodle caramelitas have a layer of chewy, cinnamon sugared oatmeal bar topped with cream white chocolate and more crumbly, chewy oatmeal bites. They are super delicious and festive!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cups instant, quick cook oats
- 1 1/2 cups loosely packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon McCormick Ground Cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, (melted)
- 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
- 1 jar of your favorite caramel sauce
- 1 teaspoon McCormick Cinnamon Sugar, (plus more for sprinkling)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9×13-inch pan with nonstick spray.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Stir in the melted butter until a crumbly dough forms.
Press half of the dough into the pan. Bake for 15 minutes.
Sprinkle with the chocolate chips immediately. Drizzle on the caramel sauce. Sprinkle the remaining crumble on top. Sprinkle on the Cinnamon Sugar. Bake for another 15 to 20 minutes.
Remove and sprinkle on a bit more Cinnamon Sugar. Let sit for 4 to 6 hours before slicing. I love to stick these in the fridge and slice!
I mean just look at those bites!
