    Combine flour, rolled oats, 3/4 cup brown sugar and remaining 1/2 cup butter. Mix until well-blended. Pat firmly into ungreased 1/4 sheet pan. Sprinkle with pecans. Pour caramel topping evenly over pecans and crust. Bake at 350° F until caramel is bubbly, about 15 to 18 minutes. Break chocolate into 1 inch chunks. Sprinkle evenly over caramel layer. Bake 1 minute longer to allow chocolate to melt. Swirl chocolate for a marbled effect. Cool slightly, then chill to set chocolate. Cut into bars.
