Makes about 54

3/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup flour
1 cup oatmeal
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
32 caramels, unwrapped
1 tablespoon butter
3 tablespoons milk
1 package (6 oz) chocolate chips, about 1 cup
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350 F. In a small mixing bowl, combine butter, flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, and baking soda; mix well. Put 3/4 of butter-oatmeal mixture in an ungreased 9x13 pan, pressing evenly over the bottom of pan. Bake for 10 minutes. In a saucepan, combine the caramels, butter, and milk and heat, stirring, until the caramels are melted. Pour caramel mixture over the baked crust and sprinkle with chocolate chips and nuts. Top with remaining butter-oatmeal mixture. Bake for 15 minutes more. Cool and cut into bars.

Would make this again.
These were awesome! I made them for a cookie exchange and they were a big hit. I did spray my pan based on some of the previous comments and they came out of the pan with no problems.
Will definitely make these again....very tasty!

Would make this again.
I would use less Chocolate chips next time. I am thinking I will try Caramel Ice cream topping rather than unwrapping all those caramels. Since that is what you are making by melting caramels, butter and milk anyway. 5 stars
