Caramel Yummies!

I got this bar recipe from my cousin Cristy! I decided to make it while my parents were visiting. I made it, took it out to cook, left the house and went for a walk. Came back... and I promise you - half of it was gone. The only thing I would change about it is that I would double it and make 9 x 13 size instead of a square pan - it just wasn't enough!

Caramel Yummies


3/4 cup softened butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/3 tsp salt
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)


3/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
3 Tbsp. flour

Preheat oven to 350. Combine butter and sugar in a large bowl mixing well. Add flour, oats, soda and salt; mix until resembles coarse crumbs. Press half of this mixture onto bottom of a greased 9 inch square pan; Bake 10 minutes and then sprinkle with chocolate chips/pecans; Mix caramel topping and flour in a small bowl and drizzle over the bars; Sprinkle with remaining oat mixture and bake for another 15 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into bars!

Mmmm, these look delicious! I would love to make desserts more often, but my husband's not a huge sweet-eater, so usually when I make sweet stuff we have a little and the rest goes to waste. I usually wait to make sweet stuff until we're having company or are going to a family gathering or something!
