Caramel Oatmeal Bars

Buttery oatmeal,
gooey caramel.
As our "little spoonful", Dylan says
nummmmm.

 
 This is a fairly new recipe that we found.
But have made many times in the last couple months.
Why?
Because we just love it.
We love oatmeal.
And caramel.
And it tastes good.


Although we're not too fond of unwrapping the caramels,
it is so worth it.

Once you have the caramels unwrapped
melt them over low heat with 1/2 & 1/2.

 Gather some basic ingredients:
Flour, brown sugar, chocolate chips,
oatmeal, baking soda, and butter.

Combine them
 and get this.
Press half of the mixture into 
a greased parchment paper lined square baking pan.
 Bake this layer for 10 minutes.

Then sprinkle with chocolate chips.
Drizzle the melted caramel over the chocolate chips.
 Yum. Don't you just want to take a bite now?
Top with the remaining oatmeal mixture.
And bake for about 18 more minutes.
Cool and then cut into squares.
Oops...sorry!
Couldn't wait to try a bite!
It just tastes so good warm from the oven.
