SWEET SUNDAY

I swear every cookie exchange I've ever been to, these tasty lil' devils are the rave of the party! There are many versions of this spectacular layered bar floating around but this one is the best in my opinion. The crusty outer and the gooey center makes for a killer combination. Be careful - you can seriously wolf down about 10 of these if you're not careful. An easy finger dessert for any party!

~Carmelitas~

Ingredients:
2 cups flour
2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup melted butter
14 oz. pkg. light caramels, unwrapped
1/3 cup light cream
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease 13x9-inch pan and set aside.
In large bowl, combine flour, oats, sugar, soda and salt and blend.
Add melted butter and mix until crumbly. Reserve half of crumb mixture (about 3 cups) for topping.
Press remaining crumb mixture in bottom of greased pan.
In a small bowl, combine caramels and cream.
Heat in microwave oven for 4-6 minutes on 50% power, stirring twice during cooking, until caramels are melted and mixture is smooth.
Sprinkle chocolate chips and nuts over reserved crust.
Drizzle evenly with melted caramel mixture and sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until light golden brown.
Cool 1 hour or until completely cooled. Cut into bars.

I hope this ends your weekend on a sweet note! xo
