Traci's notes for this recipe:
Just trying something new and know several people that love caramel, so I decided to go with this easy recipe.

Original recipe from Pillsbury's Bake Off Contest Prize Winning Desserts magazine.

Heat oven to 350. Line 13x9 inch pan with foil and then spray with non-stick baking spray.
In large bowl, beat all "Base" ingredients until crumbly. Remove 1/2 of the mixture and put in pan, pressing down to form crust. Bake 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix caramel sauce and 3 tablespoons of flour.

Sprinkle chocolate chips and nuts over baked crust. Spoon caramel sauce on top.
Sprinkle remaining crust mixture over the top. Bake at 350 for about 18-22 minutes until golden brown. Cool completely on cooling rack, about 1 hour, then refrigerate 1 - 2 hours or until filling is set.
Lift from the pan by grabbing foil. Peal foil away from sides and cut into bars. Store in tightly covered container.
