And Carmelita Bars

These things are great frozen, so you have to gnaw a corner off to get at them:

Oatmeal Carmelitas (Anne Bonnerup)
2 C. flour
1 (12 oz) bag chocolate chips
2 C. oatmeal
1 C. pecans, chopped
1 ½ C. brown sugar
1 t. baking soda
½ t. salt
3 sticks butter
1 jar Mrs. Richardson carmel ice cream topping
1/2 C. flour

Mix 2 cups flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, soda and salt with melted butter. Press half of the crumbs into a 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Sprinkle the nuts and chocolate chips over baked crumbs. Mix ½ cup flour with carmel topping, then drizzle over chocolate chips and nuts. Crumble remaining half of crumbs over the top. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Cool completely before cutting. Store cool.
