Oatmeal Chocolate Caramel Bars

I saw this recipe this week on My Kitchen Cafe and knew I had to try it. It turned out very good! It is very rich and very sweet - and OH SO YUMMY! Great mix of flavors. Give it a try. Oatmeal Chocolate Caramel Bars
Makes a 9X13 pan of bars

1 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 c old-fashioned oats
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 c brown sugar
1 c melted butter

14 ounce bag of caramels
1/2 c whipping cream or milk
1 12-oz package of semisweet chocolate chips (I used milk choc.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the first six ingredients together and sprinkle half on the bottom of a 9X13 baking pan and press. Bake 10-15 minutes, until lightly browned.

Meanwhile, melt the caramels and the whipping cream or milk in a saucepan over low heat or in the microwave at 50% power, stirring often, until the mixture is smooth. When the bars have been removed from the oven, sprinkle chips over the crust and pour the melted caramel over the top. Sprinkle the rest of the crust over the top and bake in the oven for an additional 10-12 minutes, until the caramel is bubbling and the edges are lightly browned. Cool the bars completely before serving so they can set up properly (if that is possible! We kept snitching some)

NO WAY! I found those bars yesterday on that website and ended up making them, too! How funny is that. They were quite yummy...I gave most of them to Jake's young men, though.

Anything with chocolate and caramel has to be delicious. I think I'll make these for B.Y.U. family night!
