Chocolate Caramel Oat Bars

You'll Need:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup + 2 Tab. butter, melted
1 (14 oz.) bag caramels
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 bag semi sweet chocolate chips

Unwrap caramels. Melt caramels with heavy cream in a saucepan over low - medium heat. In a large bowl, combine four, baking soda, salt, oats, brown sugar, and melted butter to form a crumbly mixture. Sprinkle half of the crumbly mixture into a greased 9x9 pan. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes. Sprinkle chocolate chips over baked mixture and top with caramel sauce. Sprinkle remaining crumbly mixture on top. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes more. Make at least several hours ahead to allow caramel to set.

*when I made these, I used a whole bag of chocolate chips and the chocolate kind of overpowered the caramel. Next time, I would use half to 3/4 of the bag.
