Caramel Bars

1 cup flour
1 cup oatmeal
3/4 cup melted butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix like pie crust and pat in 8 x 10 inch pan. Save 1 cup for topping. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.

35 caramels
1 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup crushed nuts

Melt caramels w/ 5 tablespoons of milk or cream.

Put 1 cup chocolate chips on crust, then caramel, and then add nuts. Finally, add the extra cup of crust to the top. I've found it best to let it cool in the refrigerator.

Special thank you to my Grandma Carol and my mom for this recipe. Wish you could still be with us Grandma. Also, thanks to Holly for inviting me to post on this blog, and to my beautiful 6-year old daughter Aubrey for unwrapping the caramels for me! Merry Christmas!
