Toll House Caramel Bars

These are another tried and true favorite among friends and family. I love them because they are so easy and so rich they are just enough cut into 2 inch squares.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
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 (I usually use a high end brand from Whole Foods, it is thicker)
2 1/3 cups of flour
2 cups of old fashioned oats

In one bowl combine 2 cups of flour, brown sugar, baking soda, and oats. Stir in buter.

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.
