Chocolate Caramel Oatmeal Chews

These are for Bob’s Christmas work lunch today.  The recipe is from Pampered Chef.  Looked like a whole pan of gooey goodness!

2 cups quick or old fashioned oats

1 3/4 cups flour, divided

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup butter, melted

1 cup butterscotch or caramel ice cream topping

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1  Preheat oven to 350.  Spray 9 x 13″ pan with cooking spray.  Combine oats, 1 1/2 cups flour, brown sugar and baking soda.  Add melted butter and mix until crumbly.  Reserve 1 cup of crumb mixture.  Press remaining crumb mixture onto bottom of pan.  Bake 15 minutes.

2  Combine caramel topping and 1/4 cup flour, whisk until smooth.  Drizzle over crust, carefully spreading to edges.

3  Combine pecans and reserved crumb mixture.  Sprinkle crumb mixture and chocolate chips evenly over caramel mixture.  Bake 15 – 18 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.  Cool completely before cutting into bars.
