Ingredients

Crust

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 9 oz
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 ½ cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or 1 teaspoon if using unsalted butter
  • 10 oz butter salted or unsalted, very soft (but not melted)

Filling

  • 1 11.5 oz jar Simple Delights Salted caramel topping, softened or at room temperature
  • 1 1/3 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup white chips
  • 2/3 cup toasted and chopped pecans

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9x13 inch metal pan with foil and grease the foil.
  • Mix the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda and salt together in a large bowl. Add the soft butter and stir until blended. Reserve half of crumb mixture (about 3 cups or 504 grams), then press the rest into the bottom of the pan. Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Sprinkle chips and nuts over baked crust. Drizzle evenly with softened caramel. Crumble reserved topping evenly over the top.
  • Return to oven and bake an additional 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 hour or until completely cooled, then chill for 2 hours or until filling is set.
  • Lift from pan and cut into bars.
