From my 3rd most favorite cookbook - Keeping Up (it is the 2nd Ivory Family Favorites). You really should own both.
I have made these a couple of times and seriously people - they are so dangerously good.
Make these today and share them with someone!
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Mix butter, brown sugar, oats, soda and salt. Press 3/4 of mixture into bottom of 9x13 pan, greased. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
1 - 14 oz pkg kraft caramels, unwrapped
3 T cream or half and half
3 T butter
2 c milk chocolate chips
While crust is baking, melt caramels, cream and butter over low heat in double broiler (I don't have one so just be careful). Pour melted mixture over crust. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Crumble the rest of the oat mixture over top. Bake at 350 for 15 more minutes. Cool before slicing.
