Caramelita Bars slightly adapted from The Picky Apple

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup quick-cooking oatmeal
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9" x 13" baking pan; set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. Slowly add the melted butter and beat into the dry mixture until fully incorporated.

Take half of the mixture and press it into the bottom of the greased baking pan and bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Do not turn off the oven.

Remove the pan from the oven. Drizzle the caramel over the baked streusel layer. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the caramel and top with the remaining portion of dough. Bake for an additional 15 minutes in the oven. 

Allow to cool for 30 minutes before cutting.

The first time I made these, I got confused. put the choco chips & 2nd 1/2 of dough on the top, had no middle layer! Mine were a gooey , tasty mess.
