Oatmeal Caramel Cookie Bars

So simple, and SO good.  If you have a caramel lover in your home they will love these.  It’s more like candy than a cookie.  I made four pans to bring to my MOPS meeting today!  I’m not to be trusted with a pan of these hanging around the house!

Oatmeal Caramel Cookie Bars            Preheat Oven to 350°

Caramel cookie bars

Still warm and the caramel is gooey!

1 pkg. (14oz) caramel candies

1/3 c. evaporated milk

2 c.  flour

2 c. oatmeal

1 ½ c. brown sugar

1 tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. salt

four pans of cookie bars

I made a triple batch and split it into four 8x8 pans!

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 c. butter (two sticks)

1 pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 c. chopped walnuts (optional)

Heat candies and milk in 2 quart saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently until smooth.  Remove from heat.  Mix together flour, oats, brown sugar, soda, salt and egg in large bowl.  Cut in butter with a pastry blender or fork until mixture is crumbly.

Press half of the mixture into a 9×13 pan. Bake 10 minutes, remove. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and drizzle with caramel sauce.  Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture over the top.  Return to oven and bake until golden brown, 20-25 minutes.  Cool at least 30 minutes before cutting into bars.
