Oatmeal Chocolate Caramel Bars
1 pkg vanilla caramels (11 oz bag)
1/3 cup milk
2 cups flour
2 cups quick or regular oats
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan with shortening.
Unwrap caramels and place in a medium size heavy duty sauce pan along with the milk. On low heat, stir the caramels and milk until smooth, remove from heat. Set aside.
In a large bowl stir the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda, salt and egg. Cut the butter into the flour mixture with a fork until crumbly. Press half the mixture into the bottom of prepared 13×9 inch baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Sprinkle the chocolate chips and pecans over the baked layer. Drizzle with melted caramels. If the caramels have cooled off , reheat just enough to be able to drizzle. Evenly sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture over top. Bake 20 – 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 30 minutes. Loosen the edges of the bars from the pan by running a knife around the edges. Cool completely. Cut into bars.
