Caramel Candy Bars

And bar cookie #3.

1 (14 oz) bag caramels

1/3 cup milk

2 cups flour

2 cups quick cooking or old fashioned oats

1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 egg

1 cup butter, softened

1 (6 oz) package semisweet chocolate chips (1 cup)

1 cup chopped walnuts or dry roasted peanuts (left the nuts out of this one in case anyone was allergic)

1  Heat oven to 350.  Grease 9 x 13″ pan.

2  Heat caramels and milk over low heat, stirring frequently, until smooth.

3  Stir together flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda, salt and egg in large bowl.  Stir in butter with fork (I used my pastry blender) until mixture is crumbly.  Press half of the mixture in pan.

4  Bake 10 minutes.  Sprinkle chocolate chips and walnuts over baked layer.  Drizzle with caramel.  Sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture.  Bake 20 – 25 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool completely and cut into bars.
