- 1/2 tsp. soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 3/4 cup carmel ice cream topping
- 1 cup Hershys Special Dark Choclate Chips
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

When finished baking add chocolate chips and chopped nuts. Blend carmel sauce with 3 tablespoons of flour and then pour over the chocolate chips and chopped nuts. Pour remianing oat mixture over the top and bkae for an additional 20 minutes at 350 degrees. After removing from oven let the cookies cool for 2 hours before cutting.
