Caramel Oatmeal Chewies

I warn you this dessert is addicting!! 
The first time I had this delicious dessert of chocolate, caramel and oatmeal was at a clothing, accessories, shoe party that was held by one of the Scharman sisters. I didn't buy anything, but I sure did eat a lot of these caramel oatmeal chewies. I think I had about 4 to be exact. I made Erin give me the recipe right after I ate the first one. I didn't want to leave the party without that recipe in my hand!

I hadn't been able to make them till this past memorial day. We went to a BBQ on memorial day and I volunteered to bring the dessert. I decided this dessert would be perfect for adults and kids. 
It was a big hit! 
Having it with a side of ice cream just made it that much better.

Carmel Oatmeal Chewies

1 ¾ cup Oats
1 ¾ cup Flour, divided
¾ cup packed brown sugar
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt (optional)
¾ cup (1 ½ sticks) butter or margarine, melted
2 cup (12 oz pkg) semi-sweet choc chips
1 cup chopped nuts
1 cup caramel ice cream topping

Preheat oven to 350. Grease bottom of 13 x 9 pan.
Combine oats, 1 ½ C flour, brown sugar, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Stir in butter; mix well. Reserve 1 C oat mixture; press remaining oat mixture onto bottom of baking pan.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle w/ morsels and nuts. Mix caramel topping with remaining flour in small bowl; drizzle over morsels to within ¼ in. of pan edges. Sprinkle with reserved oat mixture.
