Chocolate Caramel Bars-by Kyla

Kyla was in charge of the dessert for FHE and decided she wanted to make these bars. I told her that I wouldn't be able to help her because I had piano lessons right after school so she said she could do it on her own. And she did...and they were GREAT!! All the family really liked them and Kyla was so proud of her work.

Chocolate Caramel Bars

2 1/4 cups flour, divided
2 cups quick-cooking oats
1/1 2 cups packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups cold butter or margarine
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans
1 jar (12 oz.) caramel ice cream topping

In a bowl, combine 2 cups flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter until crumbly. Set half aside for topping. Press the remaining crumb mixture into a greased 9 X 13 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and pecans. Whisk the caramel topping and the remaining flour until smooth; drizzle over top. Sprinkle with the reserved crumb mixture. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for 2 hours before cutting.

I just had to throw in this picture of Eli and Rhett enjoying their treat!:)
