Tasty Tuesdays

I haven't posted a dessert in awhile and these Oatmeal Carmelitas are worth the wait. A chewy chocolate filling rests on an oatmeal-brown sugar crust in these winning bars.

2 C. Instant Quaker Oats
2 C. Flour
1 C. Brown Sugar
1 C. Butter
1 tsp Salt
1tsp Baking Soda
12 oz. jar of Butterscotch Caramel
6 Tbsp. Flour

Mix oats, flour, brown sugar, butter, salt and soda together.
Press half the mixture into a 9x13 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
Spread chocolate chips over crust while still warm.
Pour jar of Caramel sauce, mixed with 6Tbsp. flour, over the top of chocolate chips.
Take remaining dough and flatten out pieces in your hand, to cover all. Bake another 15-20 min.
Refrigerate until set up, usually takes a couple of hours.

A tasty treat all by themselves, but also great served warm with ice cream.

Cut with plastic knife for best results

Those are so good! You made that before at a party or something and I couldn't keep my hands off them. I'm glad I have the recipe now.

OH MY GOSH! That sounds so amazingly, literally sinfully...DELICIOUS!!!! Probably a bad idea to make if not having a get together (because I would seriously eat them all!!)

Katie: I am glad that I am not the only one with the bad habit of making a yummy treat and then almost single-handedly eating all of it.
