Oatmeal Carmelitas

These are really easy to make. And when you eat them warm, it's like you're eating cookie dough....

2 cups flour
2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed firmly
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups butter or margarine

Heat oven to 350. Grease 9x13 pan. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup. Level off. In large bowl blend ingredients until crumbly. Press about 3 cups (1/2 of mixture) into prepared pan. Reserve remaining crumbs for topping. Bake for 10 minutes.

1 package (6 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used Ghiradelli milk chocolate - YUM)
1/2 cup chopped nuts
12 oz caramel ice-cream topping
3 tablespoons flour

Sprinkle crust with chocolate chips and nuts. Blend caramel topping and flour. Drizzle over chocolate and nuts. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Return to oven and bake 18-22 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely. Cut into bars. Chill for easier cutting. Yield: 36 bars
