Oatmeal Carmelitas

And this is my favorite bar cookie: I have to have lots of people around or I will eat them all! They are so good!!Recipe from: Jadi's Favorite Recipes

For the Crust:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/4 cups butter, softened

For the Filling:
1 (12.5 oz) jar caramel ice cream topping
3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 (6 oz.) pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips (I usually add a little more)

Heat oven to 350. Grease a 13X9-inch pan. In a large bowl, blend all crust ingredients on low speed until crumbly. Press half of crumb mixture, about 3 cups, in bottom of greased pan. Reserve the remaining crumb mixture for the topping. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine caramel topping and 3 Tbsp. of flour. Remove partially baked crust from the oven; sprinkle with chocolate chips and nuts. Drizzle evenly with caramel mixture; sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Bake an additional 18-22 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely. Refrigerate 1-2 hours until filling is set. Cut into bars. Enjoy!!!
