I love desserts that look and taste like I put a lot of effort into, but really only took me minutes to make. If you are someone who likes cookies, chocolate, caramel and pecans, beware. Don’t find yourself alone in the house with them. I ate the majority of these bymyself. They are addicting.
1 cup butter (two sticks), softened to room temperature
1 12 oz. bottle of caramel topping
2 cups milk chocolate chips
2 cups pecans, coarsely chopped
In a medium bowl combine flour, oats, brown sugar, salt and soda. Add softened butter and stir until it makes crumbs. Press three quarters of the crumbs in the bottom of a large cookie sheet (12 x 17 x 1 or 10 x 15 x 1). Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and pour caramel evenly over crust. Sprinkle with chocolate chips, pecans and remaining crumbs. Return to oven and bake for 15 minutes. Let cool slightly before cutting.
