Oatmeal Carmelitas

This recipe is a bit more time consuming than what I normally like to do. Waiting two hours to eat something after it comes out of the oven is torture! These treats are worth the wait. Chewy, sweet, and chocolatey... What could be better! I used the rest of the dulce de leche in alfajores, which I will share with you later this week.
1 cup flour
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup margarine, softened
1/2 of a 14 ounce can of dulce de leche
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8x8 pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda, salt, and margarine until crumbly.
Press half of the crumb mixture into the bottom of the pan. Bake for 8 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and pour dulce de leche over the crust. Top with chocolate chips. Put the rest of the crumb mixture on top.
Return the pan to the oven and bake 15-18 minutes.
Cool in the pan for one hour. Then refrigerate for one hour. Slice into bars and enjoy at room temperature.
Yields 16 bars.
