Caramel Oatmeal Bars

1 cup flour
1 cup oatmeal
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
32 caramel pieces, unwrapped
1/3 cup half and half
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Notes/Story:  Blend the flour, oatmeal, butter, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. Pat firmly in a well greased 9 by 13 pan.  Next melt the caramels in the half and half.  (I had to use a beater to mix it all together.)  Pour the caramel mixture over the crumb mixture. Lastly, sprinkle with chocolate chips.  Bake for 20 to 25 minutes at 325 degrees F.
This was a new recipe I made for Elizabeth and Kristin when they came home for a week in June.  It ended up being a big hit! (They sure disappeared faster than the Trix-krispies I made!)


  1. These things were rootin' tootin' good

  2. they were some tasty treats, for sure!
