As I shared before, my son requested me to bake for his friends. I made two bars both with caramel inside. I always love caramel. Whenever I think of something to give away, I know that bars with caramel wont fail me. This is the second one I made and its fully loaded with caramel, chocolate chips and pecan. The precious pecan nut is actually a bonus. I have left over last holiday season so I decided to mix in. In the end my son also brought some to his classmates and yes, it was a hit. They all love it! What made me laugh was one of his classmates told him she is on a diet but she would like to have some for her mom. Of course my son did bring some for her mom. I find the gesture so thoughtful. I wanna be her mom too… LOL!
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups quick cooking oats
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 cup margarine, softened
1 cup caramel topping
3 tbsp all purpose flour
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup pecan, chopped (you may use other nuts)
Preheat oven to 350. Use a 13x9x2 inch pan and line it with aluminum foil, then spray with oil or smeared with butter. Set aside
In a mixer or bowl, combine: flour, oats, margarine, sugar, baking soda and salt. Beat at low speed until crumbly. Divide the mixture into 2
Spread the first half of the mixture on a pan, bake for 10 minutes. While baking proceed on making your caramel, you can see it here: Brownie Caramel Chocolate Bars
After baking the first half, let it cool first then sprinkle chocolate chips and pecan on top, finally pour over the caramel. Then sprinkle the second half of the crumbly mixture. Bake for another 18 minutes.
Cool for an hour before slicing or better chill in the fridge for two hours. Again it will give you 24 slices.
Oh my goodness, I never thought that oats could be that good. Obviously Im not a fan of it. But due to aging, I have to like oats. I am now into the world of acceptance. Seeing these magical bars with caramel and chocolates swept me off my feet. Now I am really back again.. yes I am.
