Caramel Bars

My friend introduced me to these scrumptious caramel bars and we can't get enough of them.
A real crowd-pleaser. YUM.


1 cup butter, melted
1 ¼ cup flour
1 ¼ cup oatmeal
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda

32 caramels ( kraft works best)
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons heavy cream
1 12 ounce bag of chocolate chips ( semi-sweet)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Combine butter, flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, and baking soda. Mix well. Grease the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. Press ¾ mixture into the bottom of the pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

3. In saucepan, combine caramels, butter, and cream. Stir until melted. Pour caramel mixture over crust. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and top with remaining oat mixture. Bake 15 minutes.

4. When cool- store in freezer or fridge to harden enough to cut. Best stored in refrigerator.
