If Betty Crocker was a drug dealer, this is what she would be slinging.
This little gem is very much like the Apricot/Raspberry Crumb Bars but filled with caramel and chocolate.
Add this one to your holiday platter and have all your friends and neighbors mowing your lawn and bringing you coffee for an entire year!
- 2 sticks melted butter
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 2 cups flour
- 2 cups oatmeal
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/3-3/4 bag of chocolate chips, depending how chocolately you like it
- 1 jar (10 ounces-ish) of caramel topping. I used the Fleur de Sel Caramel Sauce from Trader Joe's, but you could use Smucker's or Mrs. Richardson's.
Grease a 9"x13" baking pan.
Combine the brown sugar, flour, oatmeal, baking soda & salt. Add melted butter and mix until crumbly.
Press HALF of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and spread the jar of caramel topping on top, followed by the chocolate chips. Sprinkle the remaining prepared dough mixture over the top.
Place back in oven and bake for an additional 15 -20 minutes, until it's a light golden brown.
Allow to cool and chill completely before cutting them into squares. Go forth and gorge!
