Oatmeal and Everything Bars

Using up some leftover cream and a bag of caramels I’d randomly bought ages earlier, with good results!

Ingredients:

  • 1 11 ounce package of caramels
  • 3 tablespoons cream
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 11×7″ pan.

In a small saucepan, combine the caramels and cream over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until melted and smooth then set aside.

In a large bowl, melt the butter then stir in the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt.

Press a bit more than half of the oat mixture evenly into the prepared pan.

Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top, then pour the caramel over that.

Crumble the remaining flour mixture over the caramel, then bake for 20 minutes.

Cool in the pan, then cut into bars.
