Chocolate Caramel Oatmeal Chews

Stephanie- (pointing to my mouth) "TJ, see this tooth, right here?"
TJ- "Yes, what's wrong with it?"
Stephanie- "It's bothering me"
TJ- "why?"
Stephanie- "I think I need to make something sweet and then it will be ok."

get it?!? Oh, boy! It's a good thing I crack myself up!
I made myself a little sweet treat today because my teeth told me too! :)

Chocolate Caramel Oatmeal Chews

2 cups oatmeal
1 3/4 cups flour
3/4 cups brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup butter
1 cup caramel ice cream topping
1/2 cup chopped pecans (I did not use this, of course!)
6 oz, semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Combine oats, 1 1/2cup of the flour, brown sugar and baking soda in bowl. Add melted butter and mix until crumbly. Reserving 1 cup of the mixture pour into a 9x13 pan and press to flatten in the pan. Bake for 15 minutes.

Combine the caramel ice cream topping with 1/4 cup flour in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Drizzle over the bottom crust, and spread to the edges. Top with Chocolate chips and the remaining crumb mixture evenly over the caramel mixture. Bake for 15-18 minutes more, or until golden brown and bubbly. Cool completely, and cut into bars.

Did you notice how I used some extra caramel to make a heart on the bottom of the plate. Fancy huh?! :)
