My sister over at TheCraftPatch gave me this recipe. Oh my, it is truly delicious. I was looking for a way to use some leftover caramel topping and this was definitely a good way to go.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup quick cooking oats
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup melted butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
3/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
3 T flour (only use the flour if you have caramel topping that is runny)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease one 9x9 (or 8x8) inch square pan. Combine flour, baking soda, oats, brown sugar, salt and melted butter. Press a little over half of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Let cool slightly then sprinkle chocolate chips and chopped nuts over the crust. Mix ice cream topping with flour and drizzle over chocolate chips. Crumble the remaining flour mixture over the top and press it down. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Let bars cool completely before cutting.
