Oatmeal-Caramel Bars

Nicki made this recipe for our cooking club in June.  They were super yummy, so tonight after spying a bag of caramels in the grocery store, I was inspired to make a batch.  I must warn you, these are SUPER YUMMY!

Oatmeal-Caramel Bars     

1 c. butter
2 1/2 c. flour
2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
3 c. quick-cooking rolled oats
1 c. chocolate chips
1/2 c. chopped pecans or walnuts
24 vanilla caramels (7 oz. bag)
2 tbsp. milk

In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter with an electric mixer. Add 1 cup flour, sugar, eggs, vanilla, soda. Stir in remaining flour and oatmeal. Press 2/3 (about 3 1/3 cups) in ungreased 15 x 10 x 1 inch pan. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and nuts. In saucepan or double boiler, melt caramels and milk. Drizzle over chocolate chips and nuts. Drop remaining dough by teaspoonfuls over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. Cool. Cut into bars. Makes about 60 bars.
