Traci's Story

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.

Ingredients

BASE
2 c
flour
2 c
quick-cooking oats
1 1/2 c
packed brown sugar
1 tsp
baking soda
1 1/4 c
butter, softened
FILLING
1 jar(s)
(12 oz) caramel topping
3 Tbsp
flour
1 c
semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c
chopped nuts

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 350. Line 13x9 inch pan with foil and then spray with non-stick baking spray.
2
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.
3
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.
4
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.
5
Lift from the pan by grabbing foil. Peal foil away from sides and cut into bars. Store in tightly covered container.
