Oatmeal Carmelitas

Ingredients

BASE:
1 1/4 c butter, softened
1 1/2 c brown sugar, firmly packed
2 c quick cooking oats
2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
FILLING:
1 jar(s) caramel ice cream topping (12.25 oz)
4 Tbsp flour
1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c chopped walnuts or pecans

Directions

1

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a glass 13×9 pan with spray Crisco. In a large bowl,
beat the base ingredients with electric mixer on low speed until crumbly. Reserve
half of the crumb mixture (about 3 cups) for the topping. Press remaining crumb
mixture in the bottom of the pan. Bake 10 minutes.

2

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together the carmel topping and 4 T of flour. Set aside.

3

After removing the base from the oven, sprinkle the chocolate chips and nuts over the partially baked base. Drizzle evenly with the caramel mixture. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.
Bake 18-22 minutes longer or until golden brown.

4

Cool completely in the pan on a cooling rack about an hour. Refrigerate 2 hours or until filling is set. Cut into bars. Store in tightly covered container.
