Oatmeal Carmelita's (the wrong way)
I love carmel. And I'm always looking for carmel recipes. By the way, is it carmel or caramel? I got this recipe from Pilsbury. I was in a huge hurry while making them and just scanned the recipe before starting to put them together. It wasn't until I was over half way done that I figured out that I was not following the recipe. Oops! But I went ahead and continued and they turned out delicious. I'm wondering how the taste if they are made the right way though.
This is the recipe from Pilsbury... the steps in parentheses are what I ended up doing.
2 cups All Purpose Flour
2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups margarine or butter, softened
1 (12.5-oz.) jar (1 cup) caramel ice cream topping (I only had a half jar so I used the half jar plus about 20 caramels melted with 1/4 cup evaporated milk.)
3 tablespoons All Purpose Flour
1 (6-oz.) pkg. (1 cup) semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I left out the nuts)
