Nancy's Carmelitas

Other than brownies, I don't have a whole lot of experience in the 'bar cookie' world. We have a lovely lady at work who makes tasty baked goods and occasionally leaves some treats on the break room table. This recipe comes from Nancy, who opened up the world of bar cookies to me - the easiest cookies to make! I can guarantee if you make these, they will have a very short life.

What's in it
1 jar caramel topping
2 C chocolate chips (or butterscotch)
1 C nuts
2 C flour
2 C old fashioned oats
1 1/2 C brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 C melted butter

How it's made
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease 9x13" baking pan.
In a large bowl, butter (melted), flour, oats, sugar, baking soda and salt. Press 1/2 the mixture into the pan and bake for 10 minutes. Remove pan from oven and sprinkle with chocolate, nuts and caramel (make sure caramel is soft enough to drizzle - I put my jar in the oven for a couple minutes to soften). Press on remaining mixture and bake 15-20 more minutes or until golden brown. Cut into small bars to serve.
