Chocolate and Caramel Oatmeal Bars

Time for the weekly treats for the weekly work meeting!  I think this recipe comes from Betty Crocker but I’m not positive.

1 yellow cake mix

1 cup butter, softened

1 egg

2 cups quick cooking oats

1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

1 cup chopped walnuts

1 (12.5 oz) jar caramel ice cream topping (about 1 cup)

3 tablespoons flour

Preheat oven to 350.  Grease a 9 x 13″ pan.  Beat cake mix, butter and egg on low for 1 minute or just until crumbly.  Stir in oats.  Reserve 1 1/2 cups of oats mixture.  Press remaining mixture in bottom of pan.  Bake 14 – 18 minutes or until light golden brown.  Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips and nuts.  Mix caramel topping with flour and then drizzle over chips and nuts.  Sprinkle reserved oat mixture over top.  Return to oven and bake 20 – 25 more minutes or until golden brown.
