I saw these on Kyla's Cookies blog and they looked delicious. I decided to make a batch to take to my friend's Christmas party. They were a hit. I warned people that they were rich but one person liked them so much that he filled his plate. I had several requests for the recipe.
Toll House Caramel Bars
1 cup of packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup of butter melted
2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips
1 jar (12 ounces) of caramel sauce
2 1/3 cups of flour
2 cups of old fashioned oats
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In one bowl combine 2 cups of flour, brown sugar, baking soda, and oats. Stir in butter.
In a separate bowl, mix 1/3 cup of flour with jar of caramel sauce TIP: Coat rubber spatula and bowl with flour or it is a mess.
Reserve 1 cup of that mixture and press the rest into a 13 x 9 greased and floured baking pan.
Cook for about 10 minutes or until it is lightly browned. Remove from the oven
Spread jar of caramel sauce on top evenly. Then sprinkle chocolate chips on top of caramel sauce. Crumble the rest of the oats/flour mixture on top. Bake for about another 20 minutes, until top brown and caramel bubbles.
