Tasty Treat and Valentine's Day Gift

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!!  Sorry my Tasty Tuesday is a little late, I was helping my pregnant sister clean her house all day yesterday to get ready for her baby.  But hey, better late than never!  This tasty treat is SO delicious and I always get asked for the recipe.  These little babies are called Caramlitas - and are sure to be a hit!

What you will need:
1c. flour
1c. instant oats
3/4c. packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4c. melted butter
1c. milk chocolate chips
1/2 jar of Mrs. Richardsons Butterscotch

Set your oven to 350 degrees.  Mix flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt in a medium sized bowl. Melt the butter and add it to the flour mixture until completely combined.  Press half of the mixture in a greased 11x7 pan and bake for 10 minutes.  Take out of oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips over it and then drizzle the butterscotch over that.  Then, crumble the rest of the flour mixture over it and bake for another 15 minutes.  After it is done cool it and then refrigerate for an hour or so before cutting it.  Either cut into squares or be festive and use cookie cutters to make shapes for whatever holiday it may be!

Next, I have a little last minute gift idea for you.  I LOVE Hot Chocolate, it is by far one of my favorite treats to have!  So I thought it would be a cute idea to give my hubby a festive mug with some marshmallows and chocolate chips, and a cute little sign that explains exactly how I feel about him ;).  The sticker I used to make the sign was from the Doodlebug Lovebirds Cardstock Stickers.  

I hope you enjoy this very tasty treat and gift idea! I hope you all have a fabulous Valentine's Day!  Don't forget to post a comment on the 14 Reasons Why I Love You post to win this months Giveaway!  We will be announcing the winners at the end of the week so be sure to check back to see if you won and how to redeem your prize!!
