Bear with me as a I go waaay back….originally, I think this recipe came from a chocolate chip package. I think. I really can’t remember. I’ve been making this recipe for quite some time. It’s my dear friend Jill’s favorite treat! So, this post is dedicated to my dear friend, Jill!
Compliments of It’s a Keeper
2 cups quick or old-fashioned oats
1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour, divided
¾ cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter, melted
1 cup butterscotch caramel ice cream topping
½ cup chopped pecans
1 (6 ounces) package semi-sweet chocolate morsels
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 13×9 pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Combine oats, 1 ½ cups flour, brown sugar and baking soda in mixing bowl. Add butter and mix until crumbly. Reserve 1 cup of the crumb mixture. Press remaining crumb mixture onto bottom of pan. Bake for 15 minutes.
Combine ice cream topping and remaining ¼ cup flour in bowl, whisk until smooth. Drizzle over bottom of crust and spread to edges. Combine pecans and reserved crumb mixture. Sprinkle mixture and chocolate morsels evenly over caramel mixture. Bake 15-18 minutes or until golden and bubbly. Cool completely and cut into bars.
Is It a Keeper?
These bars a huge hit with most everyone that I’ve made them for. Just ask Jill. She’ll tell you how divine they are! They’re super chewy and chocolate-y (is that a word?) and caramel-y (?) and oh, so yummy! But, I’ll give you a word of caution….these are SUPER rich! It’s highly recommended that you wash these down with a big glass of milk or cup of tea or whatever beverage floats your boat! Like Oatmeal try this Instant Pot Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal.
Enjoy! Jill — this one’s for you, sister!
