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.

Thank you, Judy -- that sounds like something I will like to try.  The second Sunday of each month  I take "goodies" to the jr church kids.
This sounds like a good one for them.

I have made these and they are WONDERFUL! I only make them when I can give them away to someone special, or for a special occasion...too tempting!

I did it!  I did it!  After I finished baking my cookies I stirred up a batch of Judy's Caramel Chocolate Oatmeal Bars.   Like she suggested, I used a jar of caramel sauce and it worked very, very well. I couldn't do that without someone saying they had done it.  I'm a cowardly cooker!
The pan cooled a few minutes ago and I had my first piece.  Oh, that's good.  It's delicious and it LOOKS good - an attractive dish.
This reciep gets a red star and taped inside a cupboard door.
THANK YOU, JUDY

Nellie -- i would love to post photos of my goodies ........ I have two digital cameras and one doesn't work at all.  The other one will happily take photos but when I try to download them there is only one and I can never find it after the download.    Someday I'll get brave (and rich), buy a new one and find someone to teach/show me how to use it with this lap top.

I just finished trying this recipe with white chips and it's great.   I like it even better than the dark chocolate.
And it's soft and gooey enough to add some coconut. I love coconut. I'll try it next time.
Judy - thanks again for such a good recipe that's so fast and easy.
lol - I sure have a lot of stuff for church tomorrow.   Cookies are easier to give than candy and bars like this but heavy-duty paper plates and plastic bags work well together.

 Nellie, I'm not sure how to get a picture of it.  I guess I could have hubby take a picture of it in the pan and try to attach it here.  The picture that was in the King Arthur Baking Sheet is attractive, but I don't know how to get it from there to here.  It looks like 2 layers of oatmeal with chocolate in the middle.

Hey Judy -- when you have the time, please tell me how you keep this stuff from sticking to the pan.   When I made the chocolate kind it stuck only to the sides of the pan.  I thought I had done a poor job of buttering the pan.  So when I made the next/vanilla batch I buttered that pan VERY well and very carefully.   It stuck very badly. .... sides and the bottom.

I grease my pan with crisco.  I've given up on the sprays as I don't think they work well.  Also I have to use a spatula to get under the bars to get them out..  To keep the sides from sticking I run a knife around the edges before even cutting it.

Judy -- I don't use sprays either ..... I just smear butter, but I'll start using the Crisco I buy in those measured sticks.  Thanks
