In Response to Caramel Chocolate Oatmeal Bars:
My hubby was looking at my latest King Arthur Baking Sheet and decided he'd like me to make these bars. They are in the oven right now. Caramel Chocolate oatmeal Bars 2 1/4 c. flour 2 c. rolled oats 1 1/2 c. brown sugar 1/2 t. baking soda 3/4 t salt 1 c softened butter 1 large egg 1 1/3 c caramel (14 oz. bag) 1/3 c milk 1 1/2 cl chocolate chips 1 c. chopped nuts Heat oven to 350. Grease a 13x 9 pan. Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, baking sosa and salt in large mixer bowl. Using paddle, mix at low speed until combined. Add butter a chunk at a time with mixer running. Once all butter is in, add the egg. Put half the mixture into the prepared pan. Spread evenly and press into place. Bake 10 minutes. While base is baking combine the caramel and milk and heat stirring frequently. After you take the base out of the oven sprinkle it with the chips and nuts. Drizzle the caramel over the chips and nuts and sprinkle the remaining flour mixture over the top. Bake for 25 to 28 minutes until the top is golden brown. Cool at least 30 minutes before cutting. I used a jar of caramel sauce rather than melting 10 oz of caramels. I also used a bag of dark chocolate chips.
