Mom's Tips

September 13th, 2011 by Jim Field

Melt over boiling water:

  • 36 light caramels
  • 6 tablespoons milk

Mix together:

  • 1 1/3 cups flour
  • 1 1/3 cups oatmeal
  • 1 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 3/4 teaspoon soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup margarine (softened)

Press 2/3 of this mixture into a 9 x 13 inch pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.  Spoon the caramel mixture on top and sprinkle 1 cup chocolate chips over the caramel layer.  Sprinkle the rest of the oatmeal mixture on top.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes longer.  Do not over bake.  Cut into small squares to serve — they are rich.
